Opportunity Grants

Sometimes straight forward problems call for straight forward solutions.  Opportunity Grants is a simple, four-question application that can provide fast funding for local organizations.  To participate, organizations must be physically located within Lea County, New Mexico.  Unlike the rest of our grants, the Opportunity Grants Program has deadlines and an application process.  Funding within this program is available under three categories:

Small Capital Projects

Projects like purchasing new equipment or a small building remodel can be a simple solution to meet the changing needs in the community.

Pilot Projects

Developing innovative solutions starts with testing the idea.  A pilot project creates the opportunity to test and determine if the solution will work on a larger scale.

Strategic or Temporary Funding

Unforeseen challenges or opportunities arise throughout our work.  Strategic or temporary funding can help bridge the gap toward more concrete funding sources.
