Online applications are open, with submissions due by April 3

DULUTH—Nonprofits with projects or ideas for community enhancements can apply for grants from 25 funds of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.

Applications for the foundation’s spring grant round opened online today. Nonprofits or project teams with nonprofit fiscal sponsors can apply through 5 p.m. April 3. The foundation will provide funds to successful applicants in July.

“People in every part of our region feel the impact of our grants and the work of our community partners,” said Michelle Morris, the foundation’s director of community impact. “We’re honored to work with visionary, impactful leaders to elevate solutions and explore opportunities throughout the Northland.”

Grant priorities include: the arts, community and economic development, education, the environment and human services. The foundation also provides initial support for new projects and nonprofit start-ups.

Projects generally must be in or provide service to residents in the foundation’s service territory of northeast Minnesota, northwest Wisconsin and the seven tribal nations in that region. See the list of grants available with eligibility guidelines.
