BNMC’s Micro-Grant Program, Spark, is now Accepting Proposals for Neighborhood Projects in 2021



We are thrilled to announce BNMC Spark – the BNMC’s micro-grant program that funds creative ideas and strategies to support partners and stakeholders within the neighborhoods surrounding the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. This year, we are delighted to partner with the Fruit Belt Community Land Trust (FBCLT) to make ten awards of up to $4,000 each.

We invite community members and organizations to submit proposals to receive funding for projects and initiatives that advance the goals of BNMC, the FBCLT, and the local community. Our key goals include:

  • Building an inclusive and collaborative culture of innovation that drives economic development and creates vibrant, healthy communities.
  • Ensuring our district is attractive, welcoming, and accessible – a quality place to work, live, visit and invest in.

Learn more about the projects we funded in 2019 and 2018. Watch our 2019 video featuring some of our Spark grantees.

The deadline for applications is May 21, 2021. To learn more visit or contact
