Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, small businesses, teams, and individuals to enhance Coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts. The purpose of this program is to encourage the development and implementation of solutions to urgent problems created by the pandemic. The Foundation is specifically interested in solutions and projects that will build lasting community resilience through protecting vulnerable populations and frontline workers or providing for the safe return to work.

The Booz Allen Foundation has established an Innovation Fund to help nonprofits, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, innovators at colleges and universities, and startups and small businesses harness the power of data, technology, and diverse intellectual capital to improve COVID-19 relief efforts and make a difference.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Nonprofits can apply for grants of up to $100,000. Individuals, teams of individuals, and eligible for-profit organizations can apply for microgrants of up to $10,000.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The grants are open to individuals, teams of individuals, U.S. tax-exempt 501(c) nonprofit organizations, or small for-profit businesses. Additional eligibility information includes:
- Applicants (both individual applicants and application points of contact for organizations) must be over the age of 18.
- Application points of contact and individual applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. (Note: Teams may have members that are not U.S. citizens as long as the lead application point of contact is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.)
- Organizations and individuals that apply must have U.S. bank accounts; individuals that apply must have a U.S. bank account in their name.
- Organizations that apply must be organized in the U.S.

Nonprofit organizations that are not exempt from U.S. federal income tax under U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Code Section 501(c) may apply as small for-profit businesses—if the organization otherwise meets the criteria for a small for-profit business except for their nonprofit organization structure. For purposes of the Booz Allen Foundation Innovation Fund, small for-profit organizations are businesses that are organized in the U.S., are generally operated for profit, employ less than 100 individuals, and have an annual gross revenue of up to $3 million.

Solutions and projects can address both U.S. and international issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and proposed solutions may be employed in both the U.S. and outside the U.S.

The Booz Allen Foundation will not provide funding or work with:
- Political causes, candidates, campaigns, or political activities conducted by political organizations
- Lobbying organizations
- Religious activities conducted by religious organizations not of direct benefit to the entire community
- Nonprofit organizations that are not recognized by the IRS as public charities
- Organizations listed on governmental anti-terrorism, sanctions, or other watchlists
- Fundraising events or galas, including table sponsorships, athletic events, competitions, or tournaments unless directly connected to a program activity with which the Foundation is engaged

Pre-Application Information:

The Foundation is accepting applications from April 30 through June 5, 2020. Applications close 11:59 pm ET on Friday, June 5, 2020.

After the application period ends, you will receive an email notification informing you whether you have progressed to the semi-finalist round, where an expert team appointed by the Foundation will decide which proposed solutions have the greatest potential to build lasting community resilience.
