Funding opportunities for local government

Do you have a new idea that encourages positive change, inspires collaboration, and will impact communities? Maybe we can help. Since 2014, local government and nonprofit organizations have used more than $4.2 million in funding to positively impact central Minnesota communities.

These programs are limited to members in Sourcewell's five-county service area.

Looking for nonprofit funding opportunities?

    Need just a little extra financial support to get a small project done in your community? Get up to $1,000 per fiscal year through our Community Boost Funds program. Entities are eligible for either one Boost or one Match award per fiscal year.

    Sometimes great ideas just need money. Our goal is to financially jump-start under-funded, impactful projects to help them get off the ground and reach a successful outcome. During Review Day events, regional representatives select which projects to fund based on their potential positive impact in the community.
