You don’t have to be a professional grant writer to apply, but you should be ready with a plan to make your idea a reality in the summer of 2017. The City of Minneapolis is looking for projects big and small that can have an immediate impact. Tell us how you would help the West Broadway Avenue Corridor or Little Earth Community increase safety this summer. The initial application asks just a few basic questions about your project and provides space for you to submit your idea in 300 words or less. 

During the Proposal Development Workshops, Cities United will provide technical assistance to help you turn your idea into a proposal, including: plan development, program implementation, developing measures for gauging impact of your work.
