    Stream 2: Resilient Streets Demonstration Communities – Grants of up to $20,000 are available for up to four local governments and their partners to adapt and implement the Resilient Streets program, an approach to building social connections between immediate neighbours on residential streets and in residential buildings.

    The following organizations are eligible to apply:

    • Regional Districts
    • Municipalities
    • First Nations Bands
    • First Nations Tribal Councils

    Up to $2,500 for collaborative history projects 

    History projectsHi Funds Fans!  Here’s a darling little fund for collaborative projects aimed at improving history education within Canada.

    THEN/HiER is the first pan-Canadian organization devoted to promoting—and improving—history teaching and learning by bringing together the multiple and varied constituencies involved in history education: academic historians; public historians in museums, archives and historic sites; practicing teachers; researchers based in faculties of education; and curriculum policy makers. Their goal is to stimulate an active, participatory dialogue among these various communities of history educators, a dialogue that explores how best to improve history education in all its forms through more research-informed practice (from kindergarten to graduate school) and more practice-informed research.

    Through the Small Projects Grant Program, each year THEN/HiER sets aside $25,000 to support small projects and events related to history teaching and learning in Canada. They welcome proposals from THEN/HiER partner organizations and individuals, including graduate students, as well as others engaged in history education research and practice in Canada. THEN/HiER will consider requests for support up to a maximum of $2,500There is no deadline to apply as they will consider requests for funding throughout the year.

    Proposals should indicate in the budget other sources of funding, including in-kind contributions. They should also clearly state how the project will involve collaboration across different THEN/HiER constituencies (for example, between teachers and academic historians, or between teacher educators and a public history organization such as a museum).

    A new fund for human rights and social justice issues :) 

    Global human rights fundingGood day, Funds Fans!  Here’s another new fund for human rights and social justice.

    The Nippon Foundation provides overseas grants to non-profit organizations based outside of Japan. They can be local, regional or international NGOs/NPOs, and include educational and research institutions. The Foundation does not accept applications from, nor provide grants to, private individuals or for-profit organizations.  Grants range from $25,000+ (estimate)

    Grants are given to programs planned and conducted by overseas non-profit organizations in such areas as basic human needs, human resources development, and promotion of international cooperation.

    Due weight will be given to proposals which contain at least one of the following:

    • Pragmatic and realistic approaches to issues and problems
    • Potential for future development and self-sustainability
    • Far-reaching social and regional impact
    • Pioneering significance; creating new visions and acting as catalyst for positive changes and social transformations
    • A diversity of race, gender, ethnicity, social class, cultures and societies

    There is no application deadline as such, and applications can be received throughout the year. However, since the screening procedures may take as long as five months, it is strongly recommended that applications be submitted at least half a year before the planned start of the project, or whenever the funding will be needed.

    There it is, folks!  Go and get it!!
