2013 Grassroots Communities Mining Mini-Grant Program

Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) and Western Mining Action Network (WMAN)

The goal of the Mining Mini-grants Program is to support and enhance the capacity building efforts of mining-impacted communities in the U.S. and Canada to assure that mining projects do not adversely affect human, cultural, and the ecological health of communities.

Applications are accepted three times a year:  June 1, October 1, and February 1 (this month’s deadline has been extended)

Applicants will be notified of the funding decision within one month of the application deadline.

February 15 is the next deadline for applications to the IEN and WMAN mini-grant program.
