The Innovation Grant Program offers multi-year grants to large, innovative projects. In 2020, we will be funding our third and final year of three projects. If a new round of innovation grants is to be offered, it would be in 2021.
CFWM hosted its first Innovation Grant competition in the Fall of 2016. This first round of funding was for planning grants that provided “early stage” funding to nonprofits for emerging ideas, initiatives and/or new collaborations that could substantially impact or provide measurable progress toward solving a significant challenge in our region.
We invited nonprofit organizations to use this opportunity to ignite change, turn old solutions on their head, create and/or energize coalitions, collaborate to solve problems, and work toward impacting significant, sustainable and measurable change in the Pioneer Valley.
