CollaborACTION Grant Opportunity

CollaborACTION Grant Opportunity

Mosaic Life Care Foundation is now accepting proposals for 2020 CollaborACTION grant funding.

CollaborACTION grants support solutions that have the potential to impact education levels, character development and workforce skills. Innovative project proposals need to be a collaboration between two or more partnering organizations.

The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce and St. Joseph School District received the 2018 CollaborACTION grant for their Edge Factor project. Kristie Arthur, St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce director of workforce development, said the organization applied for the grant because the Chamber, School District and Foundation are aligned on their workforce development goals in the community.

“Without the CollaborACTION grant funding, we would not have been able to provide the Edge Factor workforce development platform,” Arthur said. “The Foundation is as passionate about making northwest Missouri a better place to work, play and live as I am.”

CollaborACTION grant awardees are eligible to receive up to $50,000 for their proposal. The deadline to apply is Friday, Oct. 23.

Grant projects must have two or more collaborative partners, can involve more than one community sector and utilize a new approach to meet an education or workforce development need.
