The Community Engagement Team is pleased to announce a 3rd round of Corridors of Opportunity Outreach and Engagement grants.

The Outreach and Engagement grants support innovative and effective community-based initiatives that engage and involve underrepresented populations (low-income, people of color, new immigrants, persons with disabilities, and persons from other cultural constituencies) in participation, decision-making, and leadership roles around transit corridor planning and implementation.

These grants will fund projects in seven corridors within the system of existing and planned transitways in the region: Southwest LRT, Bottineau Transitway, Gateway Corridor, Cedar Avenue BRT, Central Corridor, Hiawatha LRT and Northstar Commuter Rail.

The deadline to apply for implementation grants is 4 pm on Thursday, November 7. Only organizations which have received funding in the past are eligible to apply for implementation grants.
