This unprecedented moment for our social movements requires unprecedented action. At Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP), we are energized by the incredible response of our partner organizations - moving with great agility and compassion in support of our most impacted communities. HIP’s work is guided by our partner organizations’ ability to make critical, real-time decisions on how to shift and focus on ways to provide relief and recovery for our communities. While we are collectively doing our part to flatten the curve, act for health equity, and ensure that our families and elders are taken care of, our vision is on the investments needed to help address the increased vulnerabilities faced by migrant, asylum seeker, and refugee populations at this time.
Through this application process, the COVID-19 Rapid Response Migration Fund seeks to award a limited number of small grants in the range of $5,000 USD to $15,000 to US 501(c)(3) or legally established organizations to develop protocols to prepare and respond to the pandemic, as well as to offset some of the unexpected costs incurred from disruptions to operations and services as a result of it.
The following format is for organizations working primarily with Venezuelan migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. We are currently unable to fund organizations legally registered or fully operating within Venezuela.
To develop partnership with organizations or projects serving the Venezuelan migrant, refugee, and asylum seeker population in South or North America, we will seek not only to work with those providing direct legal, health, well-being and/or humanitarian services and protections for, and attention to, vulnerable Venezuelen migrant populations but who also engage in one or all of the following practices:
Advance workforce development, community integration, and/or receiving community resilience
Are primarily migrant-serving or migrant-led
Are collaborative and embrace an ecosystems approach to partnering with migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers
Serve vulnerable groups such as Indigenous People, women and girls, LGBTQI and Afro-migrant communities
Provide all contact information requested in the application.
Submit proposals by no later than midnight EST on
June 30, 2020.
A confirmation email will be sent to the email of the project lead registered in this format.
Additional information may be requested.
Only online applications from eligible organizations will be accepted. We expect to provide a grant decision response within 7 business days after your submission.
