Jewish Federation of St. Louis is offering another round of Inclusion Mini-Grants for 2017. The Inclusion Mini-Grants are aimed at helping Jewish agencies and organizations eliminate barriers to active participation of individuals with disabilities and their families in the Jewish community.
This grant opportunity will allow Jewish organizations, schools and agencies to create a culture of inclusion and shift towards an environment where all are welcome. Grants of up to $5,000 will be made for eligible programs and activities, including: building accessibility; technology; support services; staff training; student support; transportation; inclusive programs.
Like last year, preference will be given to collaborative community programs. An agency that has received a previous Mini-Grant may reapply, but only for a new program or project. Only one application per agency will be considered.
All applicants must be 501c3 nonprofit organizations. No individuals or for-profit businesses, please. Inclusion Mini-Grants applications are being accepted January 16 through February 28, 2017.Notification of grant awards will be made in April or May. This is the third and likely final year of Inclusion Mini-Grants, after which the Jewish Federation of St. Louis will be evaluating the best way to address inclusion issues moving forward.
