Funding to Counter Bias Towards New England AAPI Communities Stemming From COVID-19
Nellie Mae Education Foundation: Racism is a Virus Too

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation created a rapid response fund to respond to the hate crimes and bias against Asian American communities in New England resulting from COVID-19. The Foundation's Racism is a Virus Too rapid response fund will support organizations that provide services for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Grants of up to $15,000 will be provided to nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, and schools and school districts in New England working with communities of color serving parents, youth, or educators on transforming barriers to racial equity in public education. Support will be provided for activities including holding community meetings, culturally responsive trainings for schools, culturally sensitive therapy, community healing, and racial solidarity efforts. The Foundation is especially interested in projects that promote the safety and well-being of AAPI students in schools, and efforts that seek to promote cross-racial solidarity during these challenging times. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and funds will distributed until resources are exhausted. The request for proposals may be downloaded from the Foundation's website.
