Interhelp Network’s Micro-Grant Program Guidelines for 2019
The Interhelp Council developed this program to spark creativity, and provide seed funding to convene a Work That Reconnects (WTR) event in the Northeast U.S. The program will provide several micro-grants of up to $350. Application deadline for this funding cycle is Sept. 15, 2019.
Potential Focus Areas
We are especially seeking programs or projects that touch on or emphasize:
- Engaging people under the age of 30 in the WTR
- Offering events in areas not previously served
- De-centering whiteness in the WTR
- Developing a WTR community of practice
- Creating a “bridge” by bringing WTR to an existing group or event
Who can participate?
Anyone is eligible to apply.
How do I apply?
Contact Anne to register your intent to submit an application. You will be asked for a quick description of your proposed event.
Proposals should meet these criteria:
- The content of your planned program must include core aspects of the WTR.
- Programs must take place in the Northeast U.S.
- Grant funds must directly support the program and can be used for: presenters, facility rental, travel, and/or program supplies.
Programs that aim to make a clear, positive impact in a focus area listed above will be prioritized.
What will being a grantee look like?
- Grantees will provide a post-event report (one page or less): how many people attended, how the grant priorities were met, what was learned.
- Grantees are encouraged to submit a newsletter article and/or photos with captions for the Interhelp Facebook page or website.
