Mini-Grant Program

WMAN cohosts a unique mining mini-grant program with the Indigenous Environmental Network.  In 2019, the WMAN-IEN Mining Mini-Grant Program gave away more than $200,000 in $3,000 and $5,000 increments to grassroots organizations across the US and Canada.

This program is nearly unique in its form and scope and is of tremendous value to community-based organizations, many of whom have very few opportunities to access financial support outside their own individual pockets.

There are three mini-grant cycles per year. Deadlines are February 1, June 1, and October 1.  Applications are accepted for each cycle during the month prior to the deadline.

Download a copy of the 2019-20 Mini-Grant Guidelines. or apply online.  To download a copy of the application to fill out online, please click here.  Applications will only be accepted through the online form.
