Research & Advocacy Grants Program
NOTE: The small grants program is not funded for 2010-2011. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
PRRAC's Small Grants Program for Research/Advocacy funds social science research tied directly to ongoing advocacy projects. Our purpose is to support, encourage, and disseminate action-oriented research; to make connections between and among those who engage in action, advocacy, organizing and research; and to build public awareness about the various dimensions of and challenges faced by those at the intersections of race and poverty.
The grants in 2006-2009 were funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, with additional support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
Last year's Small Grants program focused on the Seattle-King County region. We are convening all grantees on Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at Seattle University. Contact Chester Hartman (email@example.com) for more information.
