MADRVA offers direct financial assistance through our mini-grants program.

Mini-grants are $200 and can be used for anything. We prioritize marginalized and vulnerable groups. Each person is eligible for two grants per year. Applications will only open on the set dates below at 9AM and will close once we reach 100 applications. Please also see below for more information.

2024 Mini-Grant Open Application Dates:
February 14th

May 14th

August 14th

November 14th

Be sure to fill out the form fully and let us know of any questions or changes by texting 804-362-0624. We are a small team and will do our best to process applications within two weeks, thanks for your patience!

Filling out an application does not automatically mean it is approved. Please expect to be contacted about approval. If you are approved, the mini-grant will take up to six weeks to send. 

We offer mailed checks, cash delivery, or payment via Venmo for mini-grants. Any application received after that months cycle and before the new cycle opens will not be considered.

Mini-grants are funded through community members! We reach capacity within minutes after opening applications - the need is very high. Please consider supporting this program if you're able by visiting the link below.
