Hispanics in Philanthropy Rapid Response Migration Fund
Supports organizations continuing to meet the needs of migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers deeply impacted by COVID-19 and actively working throughout the U.S., Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and in countries with significant populations of people fleeing Venezuela. The COVID-19 Rapid Response Migration Fund will support frontline migrant-serving organizations to: develop and launch emergency protocols; cover unexpected costs due to office closures or disrupted revenue streams; increase agility in services, information sharing, and advocacy; resource communities with personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning/disinfectant supply kits, and other urgent items as needed; and address other unforeseen impacts of the ongoing pandemic. Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations with 501(c)3 status and those with a fiscal sponsor that advance local reintegration of returned populations and their families, advance local community integration processes of migrants, asylum seekers, and refugees, and, if U.S. based, work with a transnational approach and in collaboration with other organizations in the region (Mexico and Central America) to reach populations and organizations south of the U.S. border. Amount: $415,000 is available for grants ranging from $5,000-$15,000 each. Deadline: June 22, 2020.
