About the Blue & You Grant Cycles

Mini Grants

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. The grant cycle opens on January 1 and closes on February 15. 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.

Regular Grants

Blue & You grant season opens on April 15 and closes July 15. These grants are awarded to community partners committed to making the lives of Arkansans healthier. We are focused on health initiatives that improve health equity and address the social determinants of health so that Arkansas communities experience better conditions where they work, play, live and learn.

Blue & You grants range from $5,000 – $150,000 and are awarded on December 15. In 2021, the Blue & You Foundation funded $3.36 million in Blue & You grants. A list of these grants may be viewed by clicking here.

We also have special giving to behavioral health programs.

The special grants are not open for applications at this time.
