Grants ranging from $250 to $2,500 to USA nonprofits, government agencies, K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and faith-based organizations for projects focusing on the areas of hunger relief and healthy eating, sustainability, women's economic empowerment, and career opportunity.

Primary consideration for the Community Grant program is to support local organizations with programs that align with Walmart and the Foundation’s areas of giving. However, programs that do not align with these areas may also be given consideration.

These include programs that are geared toward strengthening the local communities, for example, local organizations providing health and dental screenings, support for local police and fire departments, and local school-based initiatives.

Grants range from $250 to $2,500.

Organizations applying must meet one of the following criteria:
- An organization holding a current tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3), (4), (6) or (19) of the Internal Revenue Code;
- A recognized government (i.e., state, county, or city) agency, including law enforcement agencies or fire departments, that are requesting funds exclusively for public purposes;
- A K-12 public or private school, charter school, community/junior college, state/private college or university; or
- A church or other faith-based organization with a proposed project that benefits the community at large.
