Each week, NP360 will offer live links to several new, prospective funding opportunities for Minnesota Nonprofit Organizations.  These opportunities are collected from a variety of different sources.  While NP360 provides information on how to find grant possibilities, NP360 does not in any manner guarantee receipt of funds as a result of submitting a proposal. Each NPO should look for good operational and program alignment before submitting any proposal for consideration.
