Micro Grants

One-time funding opportunities of up to $5,000 to support and encourage local volunteer projects. 

Does your organization have a volunteer project in need of funding?

Our Mobilizing Volunteers Micro Grant Program offers one-time funding opportunities of up to $5,000 to support and encourage local volunteer projects. Applications for grant funding are accepted on a rolling basis as funding is available.


The goals of the program are to: 

  • Engage residents of all ages in projects that address local concerns

  • Improve the community landscape

  • Bring attention to the value and reward of volunteerism

Organizations should submit an application that will improve the Cape Cod community landscape, bring attention to volunteerism and engages community members of all ages. Organizations can be non-profits, schools, councils of aging, parent/youth organizations or other community groups. 

Examples of allowable expenses include: project supplies (garbage bags, transfer station fees, gloves). project tools (rakes, shovels, etc.), and transportation to or from the project. Non-allowable expenses include staff/personnel time, office supplies unrelated to the project, and infrastructure expenses.
