The Friends of Downtown Northfield are always looking for new ways to support businesses, property owners, and other downtown stakeholders through financial assistance such as microgrants.

Below are some examples of grant opportunities that have been or will become available.

We are exploring new microgrant options in 2023 and will share more information about opportunities soon. If you have a specific need or would like to sponsor a microgrant program, please reach out and we can discuss a partnership.


Beyond the Friends of Downtown Northfield, there are many grant opportunities available through the City of Northfield, Northfield Shares, Main Street America, and others. We will share grant opportunities on our blog and email newsletter as they become available.

Through the City of Northfield, consider exploring the following:

  • Riverfront Enhancement Grant (application open April 1 – May 15)
  • Clement F Shearer Microgrant (applications accepted on a rolling basis)

Northfield Shares has many grant opportunities through specific endowment funds. Applications in 2023 will open on July 5th.
