Haymarket Is Increasing Urgent Response Funding!
As we have for the past 46 years, Haymarket continues to support grassroots community organizing for racial and social justice. We know groups are and will need to act and mobilize quickly in our communities in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health crisis.We understand that this will include basic community and organizational survival needs as well as organizing efforts in response to the immediate public health crisis and its aftermath.
Urgent Response Grants are up to $1,000/year to help grassroots, social change organizations respond quickly to unforeseencrises or opportunities that critically affect your organization and constituency. This includes unexpected events, political crises, or organizing opportunities. Groups will be notified about grant decisions 1 - 2 weeksafter receiving an application.
In order to support your vital community organizing, Haymarket has increased the pool of available Urgent Response Grant funding. You do not need to be a grantee of Haymarket to apply but need to fit our basic funding criteria including an organizational budget under $300,000.
