About No Child Left Inside

The DNR’s No Child Left Inside Grant Program helps more children cast a line, study animal tracks, hike or bike, or simply learn more about nature!

Public entities and non-profit organizations serving youth under age 18 can apply for mini grants. A total of $200,000 is available for programs all around Minnesota. The minimum request is $500 and the maximum is $5,000. Future phases of the grant program will have larger grant awards with more extensive application and review processes.

Applications can be submitted starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2, and awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. The application period will close once all the money is awarded. All the reimbursable grant project work must be completed by June 30, 2023.
