Brooksie Way Minigrant Program

The 2019 McLaren Brooksie Way minigrant application period is now officially open. Proceeds from the McLaren Brooksie Way are given back to the community in the form of minigrants. All non-profit groups and agencies in Oakland County offering activity and fitness-related programs are eligible to apply.

Grants will be distributed in two rounds. Applications for Round 1 are due by April 1 and will be distributed at the Brooksie Way Kick-off event in late April. Applications for Round 2 are due by Aug. 1 and will be distributed the week prior to the 2019 McLaren Brooksie Way.

“The McLaren Brooksie Way minigrant program is proving to be extremely popular,” said L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County Executive.  “It helps local communities by supporting programs that promote good health. Since its inception, it has returned to the communities over $260,000 in grants.  I’m delighted to make those awards in my son’s name.”
