Summer 2023 grant opportunity funding decisions have been issued. If you applied, make sure to check your email.
We are tentatively planning on another round of grants in Winter 2023.
The long-standing commitment of Ukraine RPCVs to supporting impactful projects in Ukraine is more important than ever, as Ukrainians continue to defend their communities against Russian military attacks and cope with the damage caused by the invasion.
The Alliance is proud to offer Peremoha Mini-Grants as an opportunity for Ukraine RPCVs to continue connecting Ukrainian partners to needed resources. Full details are in the Request for Proposals (RFP), but key highlights are below:
- Mini-grant awards range in amount from $1,000 to $1,500
- The applicant must be a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer/Response Volunteer in conjunction with a Ukrainian partner they have worked with in the past. The partner can be a Ukrainian NGO, small business/social enterprise, or unincorporated group of volunteers that have a designated project and coordinator.
Funding priorities are:
- Projects that support long-term sustainability efforts including psychosocial support, mental health services, educational programs and training, such as first aid and trauma informed care.
- Projects that provide immediate humanitarian aid such as medicine, food security (i.e.supplies for food processing, preserving, or preparation), backup power, and other urgent supplies to Ukrainians in need.
- Priority will also be given to projects with Ukrainian partners who have not previously received grant funding in any of the first three rounds. Previously funded applicants are still eligible to apply.
