About the Blue & You Grant Cycles
The mini grants are $500 – $2,000 grants that focus on food security, emergency response equipment such as AEDs, Narcan and Stop the Bleed Kits and health initiatives that will positively impact a school, college or university. Applicants are only able to apply for one category.
We announce the grant awards on March 15.
In 2022 we awarded 230 mini grants worth over $401,500 to community-based organizations across the state.Apply for a Mini Grant
