The Common Counsel Foundation and Native Americans in Philanthropy are pleased to announce that the Native Voices Rising (NVR) project is now accepting applications for the 2019 Native Voices Rising grants. They encourage applications from Native-led groups that have a membership base in the community, work to develop leadership, and take collective action to win progressive social change.
NVR grants provide general operating support of $10,000 to strengthen Native-led organizations in the United States that are improving the lives of their community members. Since inception, NVR has awarded a total of nearly $1M of funding to grassroots, Native-led organizations that are involved in organizing and advocacy. Previous grant partners are collectively engaging thousands of community members across the country. They focus on a wide range of critical issues, from human and civil rights, to reproductive justice, to environmental health, and sacred sites protection. Including specifically the protection of land, water, and the recognition of Native sovereignty.

To address common questions about the application process, NVR is hosting an informational webinar<https://nned.net/4887/> on June 19, 2019. Afterwards, the recorded version of the webinar will be posted to the NVR website. Applications are due July 19, 2019.
The Cedar Tree Foundation‘s Children’s Environmental Health Initiative supports campaigns and programs designed to reduce children’s exposures to toxic chemicals in products and in their environments. The foundation recognizes that toxic chemicals pose a threat to all people, especially children, and that the government does not do an adequate job protecting children from these hazards. Cedar Tree also recognizes that communities of color are most often and most deeply impacted by environmental threats.
In November 2017, the board of Cedar Tree awarded a first round of grants through the initiative, all with a focus on marketplace campaigns that impact children’s health. A second round of grants with the same marketplace focus was awarded in January 2018.
The foundation is now accepting inquiries for a third round of grants, which will be awarded in late fall 2019. The 2019 docket will focus on nonprofit organizations working in communities of color to protect and improve children’s health by addressing exposure to toxic chemicals in products and the environment. The foundation will put special emphasis on grants to organizations whose leadership (staff/board) and programs reflect the communities they serve, with a priority placed on organizations led by people of color.
In 2019, the foundation plans to award five to seven grants ranging between $70,000 and $100,000 a year, for three years. The foundation expects that most of the grants will take the form of project support, but it is open to proposals for general operating support grants if the applicant’s mission relates directly to children’s environmental health. The foundation is open to funding local, grassroots efforts as well as national projects.
Applicants should have strong leadership by people of color (both staff and board), an innovative children’s environmental health campaign or project that addresses exposures to toxic chemicals in products and the environment, and have a budget of between $250,000 and $10 million.
A downloaded Letters of Inquiry form is available online and should be submitted by Friday, July 12. The foundation will review submissions and invite full proposals from selected organizations in early fall, with final grant awards to be announced by the end of 2019.
(Note: If you are seeking a project support grant, Cedar Tree will look at your staff and board for leadership by people of color as a way to be sure that it is raising the voices of communities of color within this funding cycle.)

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) believes in supporting and leveraging the power of patients to accelerate research and drive progress against rare diseases. (The foundation defines a rare disease as a condition affecting fewer than 200,000 people in the United States.)
With guidance from patient communities, rare disease experts, and advocacy organizations, CZI is launching the Rare As One Project to lift up the work of patient communities and enable and scale a model in which patients, researchers, and clinicians work together to drive progress against their diseases. Through the program, grants of $450,000 over two years will be awarded to advocacy organizations in support of the development and launch of research networks for rare disease area in partnership with clinicians and scientists. To that end, up to ten patient-led organizations will be awarded funding, training, mentorship opportunities, and capacity-building resources. In turn, CZI asks that grant recipients share feedback with and learn from one another and identify how to best address the most pressing needs across a spectrum of rare diseases.
To be eligible, teams should comprise at least one researcher and one clinician who, together with the patient organization, will form a research network. The initial network leadership team will then help build a larger network of researchers, clinicians, and patients.
To be eligible, applicants must be tax-exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or have a fiscal sponsor that is tax-exempt under the code. In addition, researcher and clinician roles must be filled by two separate individuals (as opposed to a single MD-PhD).
Initial applications are due July 23. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application.
See the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program provides funding in support of important projects that build momentum for bicycling in communities across the U.S., including bike paths and rail trails, mountain bike trails, bike parks, BMX facilities, and large-scale bicycle advocacy initiatives. In its current grant cycle, the organization is dedicating efforts to get more children and youth on bikes and specifically seeks applications for bike park and pump track projects. Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded in support of engineering and design work, construction costs (including materials, labor, and equipment rental), and reasonable volunteer support costs.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization with a focus on bicycling, active transportation, or community development; a city or county agency or department; or a state or federal agency working locally. Projects must be based in the United States.
Letters of Intent are due July 26. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full project proposal by October 18, 2019.
