Project Innovation

Presented by NBC and Telemundo Owned Television Stations and the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation

The application period for Project Innovation 2022 is now closed. Winners will be announced in summer 2022. Please check back for more information about the program.

The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation is partnering with the NBC and Telemundo owned stations located in 11 markets to present Project Innovation, a grant program recognizing local non-profit organizations that are tackling everyday problems through innovative solutions.

Project Innovation will award exceptional non-profit programs that are addressing one of the four community issue areas: Culture of Inclusion, Youth Education and Empowerment, Next Generation Storytellers, and Community Engagement. The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation is committed to supporting the interests and needs of our diverse communities.

The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation and following NBC and Telemundo stations located in 11 markets will award a total of $3,475,000 in 2022: San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Hartford, Dallas Fort-Worth, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, South Florida, Southern California, and Washington, D.C. Please view the full list of eligible zip codes HERE.

The grant application process is competitive. We look forward to reviewing exceptional non-profit programs that are addressing these local community issues in an innovative way.

Please note:

- Fiscally sponsored organizations are eligible to apply for a Project Innovation grant. If applicable to your program, the application should be submitted and certified by the fiscal sponsor, as the sponsor will be the ultimate funding recipient if selected for a grant.

- Nonprofit organizations aren’t prohibited from submitting more than one grant application. However, only one application across all markets will be accepted for consideration as a finalist for a grant. If you are an organization with multiple “chapters” or “affiliates” applying under the same EIN please coordinate internally as only one application across all markets will be accepted for consideration UNLESS they share a Fiscal Sponsor or Group Exemption. If your organizations’ chapters all have separate EIN numbers, then they can all apply for Project Innovation separately.
