Open Your Heart will occasionally implement Requests for Proposals for unique or timely issues affecting hungry and homeless people. These opportunities will be announced on our website at least two months prior to the deadline. Please sign up here and check that you would like “New Grant Announcements” to receive these announcements by email.
We recognize that on occasion, a natural disaster or other unforeseen event might result in a shutdown of services. We may be able to fund quickly in those circumstances. Please call our office at (612) 338-5577 or email us at [email protected] if that situation arises. Please note, emergency grants will only be available to agencies that have no other resources available and will require suspending services without immediate assistance.
