Community Action Awards Fund Ideas for Equity

165

Do you have an idea to make your community a more equitable place for everyone to live, work and thrive? The Greater Washington Community Foundation is offering Community Action Awards – small grants of up to $2,000 for individuals and nonprofits in Greater Washington who have ideas to improve the region.

The application process is easy, with just four questions to answer in an online application form. Applicants are also invited to share a short video clip describing the change they are hoping to see for their community.

Anyone in the community who has an idea of how to make our region a better place is welcome to apply.  Share this opportunity with people who may also be interested in sparking positive change in our neighborhood.

The deadline to apply for a Community Action Award is November 2, 2020. To learn more and apply, visit www.thecommunityfoundation.org/community-action-awards.

The Community Action Awards follow The Greater Washington Community Foundation’s VoicesDMV On the Table initiative which took place October 1, when hundreds of residents from across the Greater Washington region came together for virtual and small-group conversations to reimagine the future of their communities.

The Community Action Awards are helping bring ideas shared that day, and other ideas by neighbors around the region, into action. To learn more about Voices DMV On the Table, visit: www.thecommunityfoundation.org/on-the-table.
