The 2014 Social Innovation Fund grant competition will provide up to $65.8 million to eligible grantmaking institutions seeking to grow innovative, evidence-based solutions to challenges facing low-income communities nationwide. In addition to our focus areas of healthy futures, youth development and economic opportunity, this competition prioritizes applications targeting Opportunity Youth, Vulnerable Populations, Collective Impact approaches, and applications affiliated with presidential initiatives to expand economic opportunity.
 
The grant fund has also expanded the eligibility criteria for this competition so that in-network affiliate organizations can apply so long as they are willing to open up their SIF competitions beyond their exclusive networks.
 
Each selected grantmaker will be awarded $1 million to $10 million and will match every federal dollar of the grant award. At least 80 percent of awarded federal funds must be invested in subgrantee programs, who match their grants 1:1 as well. Applicants are strongly encouraged to send a Notice of Intent to Apply by March 24, 2014. Applications are due April 22, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Successful applicants will be notified in August, 2014.
