No Child Left Inside Grants - Due 12/7

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is excited to announce the continuation of the No Child Left Inside Grant Program.

Recent and emerging research indicates that students are increasingly disconnected from nature. Getting more people into the outdoors is crucial for the future stewardship of Minnesota's natural resources.

Purpose: The program aims to support and increase efforts to expand programming that connects youth to the outdoors. Funded by the 2019 Minnesota Legislature with additional funding from the 2021 legislative session, these grants are provided for outdoor environmental, ecological, and other natural-resource-based education and recreation programs serving youth. 

Application Deadline: Wednesday, December 7

Questions?: Email outreachgrants.dnr@state.mn.us with “Grant Questions” in the subject line. People may also call 888-646-6367.
