The Big List of Community Action Grants

When you're implementing ideas to help change your community, you'll often need to find some external funding. We've compiled this list of grant opportunities from around the U.S. to help you jump start your action efforts.

Note that while this list was last updated in October 2016, some of the deadlines for the grants may be in the past since we still need to update the list for 2017 information. This list is intended to serve as a reference point as you research grant opportunities. We will continue to update this list on a regular basis, but do check their websites for the most up-to-date information.
