Upcoming Grant Opportunities

The final proposal deadline of MRAC’s grant year (July 1 – June 30) passed a few weeks ago, and we received a record-setting number of requests for funding.

The new fiscal year will begin in July 2023, and upcoming grant programs and deadlines will be announced this spring.
