Grants made through our Community Interest Funds are strategic investments meant to increase access and equity. We ask community members to lead the grant process using their own power and understanding. Each committee is made up of residents who come from or identify with the population being served. They review proposals and decide which projects to fund based on the needs they are seeing in their community.

For Omaha Neighborhood Grants, funding decisions are made by a diverse committee of residents representing neighborhoods across Omaha.

The next grant cycle will open on January 1, 2024.
