The Learning Together and Connecting Communities funding opportunity is now closed.
Northwest Health Foundation announced a funding opportunity to strengthen the capacity of communities of people with disabilities to self-organize, and to build relationships with organizations and communities for a broader conversation about disability, race/ethnicity and geography.
Northwest Health Foundation wants to:
learn more about efforts in Oregon and Southwest Washington that are engaging and led by people with disabilities;
promote self-determination and build relationships among and with these communities;
and inform the Foundation’s organizational practices.
NWHF will award six to eight general operating grants of $10,000 to $15,000 to:
- Strengthen existing efforts of organizations committed to the leadership and engagement of people with disabilities.
- Bring together communities of people with disabilities to participate in two, facilitated gatherings hosted by NWHF.
- Build or strengthen relationships between organizations and communities, and with NWHF.
These are 12-month awards, beginning August 2014 and ending July 2015.
