Innovation Grants Program

The Innovation Grants Program (IGP) provides awards to support creative exploration and project development that will raise the association community’s awareness of and engagement with innovative ideas and projects. Grant recipients receive up to $10,000 to dive deeper into innovation and implement their project ideas, creating models of innovation for the entire association community.
