Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Current Funding Opportunities

We welcome new partners to work with us to achieve our goal of expanding opportunities in America’s cities.

All current, open funding opportunities are listed on this page

Our programs have established specific objectives to advance programmatic goals. These objectives are called focus areas. They are described in detail in the Programs section of this website. It is through focus areas that grant opportunities are made available to grantseekers.

Funding opportunities take three forms:

  • Open on an ongoing basis, without deadlines.
  • Open for a limited time, with specific deadlines.
  • By invitation from a Kresge program officer.­­­

We post grant and social investment opportunities here and announce them on the front page of our website as Program Updates. You also may be notified of these opportunities by subscribing to email alerts or by following @kresgefdn on Twitter.
