MNRPCV Grant Program
Each year MNRPCV receives grant requests from individuals and groups with Peace Corps connections. These requests are for support of a variety of projects both locally and internationally to help their communities.
The Board annually reviews these proposals, which are due by late spring each year. Funding takes place once a year. MNRPCV Regisered Members are an important part of this process as membership dues, fundraising efforts, and donations support these vital community projects around the globe!
