Catalyst Grants

The FY2018 Fall Catalyst cycle is closed to new applications

Proposals for FY18 Fall Catalyst Grants are under review. 

Catalyst Grants are offered in the fall and winter to support a range of short-term, small-scale collaborative activities. These grants are intended to help better define an issue or decision maker needs, gather resources and develop partnerships, and determine next steps. Activities may include, but are not limited to, convening workshops or a conference, preparing white papers, and project planning for larger collaborative projects that would be eligible for transformation grants or other funding opportunities.
