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!

The MNRPCV Grant Awards are supported entirely by our grassroots fundraising efforts. Your continued support of MNRPCV through membership dues, donations, our annual calendar sale fundraiser, Fundraiser Dinners, Silent Auction, and other events makes our Grant Awards possible, so thanks are due to all who have contributed. We appreciate your continuing support!
