Important: Before you begin..

Welcome! We are so glad you want to apply for a minigrant to help with your healthy community project. For your convenience, we have supplied two ways you can do that. You can fill out this version in Survey Monkey or your can fill out a downloadable Microsoft Word version that can be sent in as an email attachment. 
Here is the URL for the Word version:  If the Survey Monkey link does not work, try pasting it into your browser.

Using the online version:
Survey Monkey does not let people stop and save and come back to the application. You must type or paste it all in at one sitting. If you want to want to use Survey Monkey and compose your application in more than one sitting, we recommend downloading the Word version and using that to create your application. After you are satisfied with what you have written, you can easily paste your answers into this online form. That way, you can review the questions without a time limit. You can make changes, check for grammar and spelling, and have a backup copy after you send it to Try This.

You can find examples of minigrants that have been awarded in the past, along with tips for applying and the sheet that will be used to score your application at

You will hear by the end of June whether you received a minigrant. If you do receive one, you will have a year to spend your funds.
If you would like to discuss your project with one of the Try This directors, we'd be glad to schedule a time. Just mail us at, and "Minigrant consult" in the subject line. This is a good thing to do and is likely to improve your chances of success.
