$14 Million Social Innovation Grants Awarded

Last week was the second round of the Corporation for National and Community Service's (CNCS) annual Social Innovation Fund (SIF) awards, and five lucky nonprofits received grants.  All told, the awards added up to $14 million.  SIF funds the initial two years of the grants, and the organizations that receive them must match each federal dollar.  Here are the five recipients:

  • United Way of Southern Michigan: $4 million over two years
  • Mile High United Way: $3.6 million over two years
  • Corporation for Supportive Housing: $2.3 million over two years
  • NCB Capital Impact: $2 million over two years
  • US Soccer Foundation: $2 million over two years
