Always wanted to build a playground, school garden, add to your neighborhood park, or library? The MSU extension office painstakingly lists  available grant programs. If you don’t have a project in mind yet, check out available grants for ideas.

Intimidated by “grant writing”? There is no magic to it, and you don’t need a special degree, just a good dose of enthusiasm. A lot of grants are easy online forms. For others, shoot us a comment with your ideas, and we’ll connect you with community resources to help.

At the time of this writing the list contained close to 200 available grants. Below are just a few fun grants with upcoming due dates:
