Funding Opportunities

About the Blue & You Grant Cycles

Mini Grants

Blue & You mini grants are $1,000 – $2,000 grants that support food pantries and allow nonprofits to apply for emergency response equipment such as AEDs, Narcan, stop the bleed kits and child passenger safety. Mini grants also support schools, colleges and universities applying for health initiatives that will positively impact students. Applicants are only able to apply for one category.

2024 Mini Grants open January 1 and will be evaluated on a rolling basis. The applications will be approved based on the need and quality of the requests.

In 2023 we awarded 209 mini grants worth over $385,200 to community-based organizations across the state.
