Heartland Challenge RFP

The Heartland Challenge RFP is intended to support organizations, programs, and projects that build on the assets of community to support business owners and founders, especially those that are underrepresented in the entrepreneurship landscape.

The Heartland region – Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas – holds a great deal of entrepreneurial promise. However, entrepreneurs face significant challenges as they seek to start and grow businesses in these four states. The Heartland Challenge is an opportunity to develop, catalyze, and expand inclusive programs and strengthen regional entrepreneurial ecosystems.

The 2021 Heartland Challenge RFP closed in March 2021. More information about our latest grantees coming soon.
