In late January 2022, the MIBOR Economic and Community Development Council reviewed the first round of grant applications for the year. The council voted to invest in 17 projects around the MIBOR region, totaling $42,000 in investment for the first round.
The first round of investments supported a diverse group of projects and organizations from community gardens to an inclusion park to a community theater to local economic development organizations.
The MIBOR ECDC is looking for opportunities to invest in initiatives aimed at job attraction/retention and expansion, placemaking, quality of life, housing and initiatives that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. If there is an organization, project or initiative in your community that would fit within the mission and vision of the MIBOR ECDC grant, encourage them to visit: Economic & Community Development Council | MIBOR REALTOR® Association.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed quarterly, deadlines to submit the application for investment are below.
