Frontline Funds: Mini-Grants
The Southern Vision Alliance directs resources to non-traditional groups, planning processes, and organizing experiments through:
- short-term fiscal sponsorship for events, campaigns, and convenings
- re-granting modest funds to group-centered projects designed by directly-impacted communities
SVA is committed to resourcing innovative, bold grassroots efforts led by directly impacted communities across the U.S. South. SVA’s mini-grants program helps groups scale-up efforts, identify best practices, and deepen a diverse bench of leaders.
The current political climate demands that our movements be nimble, strategic and visionary. SVA mini-grants respond to urgent needs. We prioritize community-centered funding proposals from youth, working class leaders, people of color, queer and trans activists, and groups that are not traditionally funded.
Queer Mobilization Fund
The longterm vision and purpose of this fund is to support queer and trans people of color on the frontlines of struggles for freedom + liberation and to build power for and within queer communities.
Carolina Youth Power Fund
The overarching goal of this grant is to connect as many young people to resources to support ideas and projects that actively take up civic and social justice issues.
Stop Evictions Network
This grant prioritizes rapid response efforts that tackle issues related to stopping evictions, tenants organizing groups, and legislative efforts related to housing justice in NC.
