Advancing Economic Mobility Grant Opportunities

Source: National League of Cities

The National League of Cities’ Advancing Economic Mobility Rapid Grant program offers municipalities grants of between $10,000 – $15,000 to test ideas and begin to plan projects that respond to community needs. The efforts should be focused on one of three areas: 1) Creating quality employment opportunities for residents; 2) Equitable support to strengthen or start small businesses; or 3) Helping residents connect with services or public benefits.

The Rapid Grants are open to municipalities of all sizes because they all have the authority to impact the upward economic mobility of their residents. More information about the grants and the application can be found here:

Applications are due July 19, 2023.
