2024 GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant

Description: The GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant, sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation and KidsGardening, aims to bring the life-enhancing benefits of gardens to communities throughout the United States. Funding priorities include:
  1. Socioeconomic & Sociodemographic Factors: Prioritizes programs within communities systematically denied resources, considering physical assets, money, and leadership. Organizations impacted by multiple factors receive priority.
  2. Program Funding and Support: Gives priority to organizations with limited access to consistent, substantial monetary support or prior grant funding, recognizing the importance of addressing resource gaps.
  3. Impact: Emphasizes the potential for grant funding to significantly enhance learning opportunities for program participants. Prioritizes organizations with a focus on community needs, particularly those working with over 50 youth.
In 2024, 170 programs will be awarded $500 to start or expand their youth garden or greenspace. Programs can also apply for additional funding through the specialty award categories, which provide an extra $1,000, totaling $1,500 in funding (awarded to five programs per specialty category):
  1. Plus Specialty Award: Designed to fund new and existing garden programs that have greater funding needs due to, but not limited to, financial, environmental, safety, health, and regulation challenges.
  2. Pride Specialty Award: Designed to fund new and existing garden programs that serve a majority of LGBTQ+ youth.
  3. Equity Specialty Award: Designed to fund new and existing garden programs led by people of color that serve a majority of youth of color.
Amount: $500 – $1,500; a total of $100,000 will be awarded.
Eligibility: Any nonprofit organization, school district, university, government entity, or tax-exempt organization, such as religious organizations and Tribal governments, in the United States and US Territories is eligible to apply. Organizations must:
  • Support, work with, or underserved communities
  • Have 15+ youth participate in the garden program.
  • Have received less than $10,000 in grants for the garden program during 2022 and 2023 combined.
