Here’s a grant opportunity for local nonprofits that work in either hunger relief or community engagement.

The Walmart Foundation, the grant-giving arm of the major retail chain, recently started its third and final cycle for its State Giving Program this year, where nonprofits operating at a regional or state level in any state can apply for grant money ranging from $25,000 to $200,000.

The Walmart Foundation mostly focuses on helping out hunger relief efforts and organizations — past recipients of grant money from the organization have included Broad Street Ministry and the Pennsylvania Association of Regional Food Banks — but for this last cycle of giving with this grant, nonprofits working in community engagement that “focus on the unmet needs of underserved low-income populations” are welcome to apply, according to a press release.

That’s a pretty broad definition, but here are some of the examples for community engagement:

  • Career opportunity
  • Disaster preparedness
  • Education programs
  • Healthcare access
  • Shelters
  • Human service programs

Applications are available here and they’re due by the end of the day tomorrow.
