The Kresge Foundation Call for Proposals: Food as a Creative Platform for Neighborhood Revitalization
The Kresge Foundation seeks to support and accelerate local efforts that successfully use food as a platform for health, economic development, and cultural expression, creating co-benefits for all — particularly low-income residents and families.This funding opportunity aims to surface and accelerate the most promising initiatives that use food-oriented development as a comprehensive community revitalization strategy. Kresge invites proposals from organizations and collaborations leading mission-driven food initiatives in economically distressed urban neighborhoods. Kresge intends to award as many as 20 planning grants of up to $75,000 each in the first quarter of 2016. Complete proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, January 15, 2016. For detailed information about this funding opportunity, we invite you to join our webinar on Monday, December 7, 2015 at 1:00 pm EST.
