Grant applications open for Iowa Women’s Foundations Core Grants
The Iowa Women’s Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2023 Core Grants through April 29. The organization is awarding six $25,000 grants to organizations tackling barriers to women’s economic self-sufficiency, which are identified as child care, education and training, employment, housing, mentors, and transportation. One grant will be awarded per barrier. In the Iowa Women’s Foundation’s 25 years of grant making, the organization has awarded more than $1.3 million to more than 100 organizations serving women and girls in all of Iowa’s 99 counties. Last year’s 11 grantees included Easterseals Iowa; Oakridge Neighborhood; Girls on the Run Eastern Iowa; YWCA Clinton; the UI Labor Center; and the Women, Food and Agriculture Network.
