An organization, group, or individual may take on a project that is out of the parameters of the other MRA grants. The Michigan Reading Association may choose to support an innovative project through the Innovation Project Grant. Innovation, creativity, and impact are critical components of projects awarded this grant. 

Innovation Project Grants may range from $50 to $500. Organizations may apply for more than one grant but all applications may not be awarded money.  Due to limited funds, some grants may not receive full funding.  Applications are open on September 28 and due October 25.  Grant proposals will be evaluated using this rubric. All applicants will be notified by November 9.
