Grant Application

The Linking Communities Project: Creating Welcome for Refugees (TLC Project) is supporting local, coordinated, and strategic initiatives to increase welcome for refugees and support for resettlement. The TLC Project urges groups to collaborate with each other and to reach beyond more usual refugee stakeholders to do this work throughout their community or region.

Grants of up to approximately $3,000 will be made to implement proposed activities, however larger grants will be considered for larger community, regional or statewide collaborations. You will be expected to submit report of no more than 5 pages on your initiative, its implementation, and its success and/or status at the end of the grant period.

If you believe your organization, collaborative, or group would benefit from a grant, please answer the questions below. (Please type in your response with a short paragraph for each question.) Note that the organization that manages the grant must be a registered non-profit organization and that funds may not be used for lobbying.

Applications must be received by the close of business on Monday, January 20th, 2014 and sent to bethany.orlikowski@hias.org. Decisions will be made by mid-February 2014.

You need not have been present at the in-person statewide meetings in Columbus, OH and Harrisburg, PA to apply.
