Deadline Passed. Most Recent Deadline October 1, 2023. The IEN/WMAN Mining Mini-Grants Program offers financial grant assistance to communities threatened or adversely affected by mining in the U.S. and Canada.

IEN is accepting applications on a rolling basis, with deadlines of Feb 1, June 1, and Oct 1. Go to WMAN's website where you will find the new application form to fill in.
