August 2019 Fund Update

Thank you for your interest in the Rapid Resource Fund. At this time, we have already allocated our 2019 Fund resources to support eight grantee projects.

We are also in the process of re-envisioning the Fund’s guidelines and priorities to better serve communities in the Road Map Project region.

We will not be accepting applications for the remainder of 2019, but do check back in and sign up for our newsletter to receive updates about the Fund, in late fall 2019. Stay tuned to learn more about past grantees and the impact of their projects.
