Internet Society Foundation
Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for projects that improve lives during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to support projects that use the Internet to respond to needs related to the pandemic, with a focus on vulnerable and disproportionately affected communities.
The Resiliency and Responding to Emergencies (RARE) grant program accelerates efforts to help communities enhance preparedness and build Internet resiliency when faced with adverse events such as national disasters. The program consists of two components: Emergency Response and Resiliency (launching later this year).
The Emergency Response Programme provides funding to organizations working on projects that utilize the Internet to improve lives during or in response to an emergency situation. In 2021, the Foundation’s focus will be on projects that continue to respond to COVID-19 by connecting vulnerable and disproportionally affected communities to the Internet.
2021 Focus: COVID-19
As the global coronavirus pandemic continues to impact communities, society has grown more resilient and has found new ways to cope with the disruption to lives. However, as communities adapt to a new normal, the challenges ahead have also changed and reflect the need to solve different types of problems in response to the pandemic. The Foundation believes the Internet continues to play a critical role in promoting healthier and safer communities, reducing vulnerabilities, and building resilience as society looks ahead.
The Foundation is committed to working with organizations that seek to connect vulnerable and disproportionately affected communities to the Internet in order to respond to challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic. This includes establishing new networks, improving network access, and/or increasing network reliability, speed, or security. Projects should take into account the digital ecosystem of affected communities and be responsive to technological needs at the local level.
