AHEAD grants support innovative, targeted initiatives that will create new economic opportunity by expanding proven development models or piloting new interventions. Grants are awarded annually to Bank members partnering with local nonprofits, government agencies, and Tribal organizations to meet diverse local needs. Because of our members’ networks and community connections, AHEAD funding can help low-to-moderate income communities by:

  • Creating or preserving jobs
  • Delivering job training or education programs
  • Supporting small business, microlending, and microenterprise incubation for low-income entrepreneurs
  • Addressing the special economic development needs of at-risk youth, veterans, persons with disabilities, the formerly incarcerated, and Tribal communities, among others

For 2022, the Bank’s Board of Directors has allocated $1.5 million for AHEAD grants. This year’s grant recipients will be announced in early September.

We look forward to your participation in our 2022 competition. More information about AHEAD is on our website. For other questions, email or call (415) 616-2542.
