Micro-Grant Program

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:

  1. The content of your planned program must include core aspects of the WTR.
  2. Programs must take place in the Northeast U.S.
  3. 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?

  1. Grantees will provide a post-event report (one page or less): how many people attended, how the grant priorities were met, what was learned.
  2. Grantees are encouraged to submit a newsletter article and/or photos with captions for the Interhelp Facebook page or website.
