YALA Grassroots Mini-Grant is Live!

Do YOU have an idea for a Jewish initiative? Have you ever wanted to get a new project off the ground? Do you want to start something special, but just don’t have the resources? Then the YALA Grassroots Mini-Grant is for you!

Thanks to the vision, guidance, and support of the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Federations, there is now a way to get funds and resources into the hands of the individuals in the Twin Cities Jewish communities. These grants are being made available for young professionals and college students.

This is a great opportunity to explore an idea you or your friends may have had. All you’ll be asked to do in return is share a few photos and write up a quick summary of how the program/event/etc. Went!
