MicroGrant Information:

The FIRE Foundation of Northwest Iowa is excited to announce a new “MicroGrant” Program to award one-time grants of up to $1,500 to our diocesan schools. These microgrants will allow our partner schools the opportunity to obtain funds in order to take small steps towards more inclusive classrooms and schools. We have allocated $10,000 in funds for the 2023 – 2024 school year

Items Funded:

Although Diocesan schools should consider their own individualized, unique needs, some common items microgrant funding could be used for include:

● Tier 2 or 3 curriculum and/or supports
● Adaptive technology/devices
● Professional conference registration & travel
● Inclusion advocacy activities

Application Review Process:

All applications will be reviewed as they are submitted and a decision regarding the request will be given to the grant contact within 30 days. Annual MicroGrant funds are determined in June and made available for applicants from July 1st through the following June 30th. Once annual funds are exhausted no guarantee of additional funding can be made before the next fiscal year.
