Grant summary

Additional information

Support for Pursuing Federal Funding Opportunities

The grants will provide funding for nonprofits to build their internal capacity so they can access federal funds. Grants can be used to support:

  • Grant proposal writing
  • Collaborative planning
  • Federal fund searching
  • Post-award management

Individual grants from the joint fund can range from $5,000 to $25,000 based on the level of support an organization needs or if they’re collaborating with other organizations. Additionally, technical assistance from Pivotal New Mexico and 501(C)PA will be provided to all grant awardees. These partners will help with grant research, advise on proposal development, and provide consulting based on each organization’s finances.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis with an open RFP process until June 30, 2022, or when funding is exhausted.
