Funding Opportunity: Winter Micro-grant Program


Announcing the next round of Denver Micro-grants! 


We’re thrilled to partner with Denver CALC and the Trust for Public Land on a Winter Micro-grant program! We’re handing out $30,000 in micro-grants to Denver residents and organizations.


We're funding projects up to $1,000 that support work in walkability, bikeability, or access to safe and healthy spaces for physical activity. We are looking to fund projects that promote physical activity and active transportation so think creatively about opportunities to increase accessibility and safety or enhance public spaces in your own community. Applications are open and will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all funds are disseminated. 


Any individual or organization within the City & County of Denver is eligible to apply for the micro-grant. Applicants may apply more than once for different projects or different phases/components of their project. Individuals may apply for up to $200 while organizations or businesses may apply for up to $1000. 


Projects must follow and support current public health guidelines for the entire project lifecycle. Projects must also be located within the City and County of Denver and completed by April 30, 2021. Preference will be given to submissions that serve a high-need community or vulnerable populations.


This winter phase of micro-grants is designed to support the amazing community work happening in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and with an effort to foster safe, supportive, and resilient communities in Denver. Summer grant recipients wowed us with creativity and dedication - 30 community leaders created micro-projects to bring positivity, physical activity, mental health, healthy food, and more, reaching over 7800 Denverites.
