**Please note due to new guidelines from Healthy Child about our funding, we have changed our grant guidelines and are only accepting application for programs from April 1 – September 1, 2020.  Once we have confirmation of the additional funding past September, we will inform grant recipients and have an additional call for the remainder of the fiscal year (September 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021).

familiesforward supports community groups that provide parent-child programming in our area. We financially support projects that strengthen our guiding principles: learning and literacy; nutrition and physical health; positive parenting; and community capacity building. All funded projects must comply with our current funding guidelines.  The maximum funding for any project remains at $5,000.00.
Examples of funded programs include:

  • Family drop-in programs
  • Activities promoting learning, literacy, nutrition and healthy living at school open houses, family events and BBQ’s
  • Workshops for parents

The next grant application deadline is February 14, 2020.

If your organization has a project in mind, please contact our coordinator to learn how we can partner.
Grant recipients automatically become members of Fort Rouge/River Heights Parent-Child Coalition: familiesforward.
