Communitas Micro-Grant Application
Communitas Micro-Grant program provides NYC start-ups, small businesses, and nonprofits for short-term and long-term community impact. The micro-grants projects are designed and implemented by the social entrepreneurs themselves. This initiative began due to the barriers of entry that many social ventures face preventing them from achieving meaningful growth and impact.   

Grantees are awarded on a competitive basis and Communitas America decides which proposal(s) best meets the guidelines of the limited grants available. The small amounts of funding range from $250-$2,500 per micro-grant but Communitas America will consider higher or lower proposals on a case-by-case basis. All Communitas Ventures Alum members are welcome to apply for micro-grants, but priority will be given to those who have not previously applied. Both individual and joint projects are accepted.
