Grants of up to $10,000 and grants of up to $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations for support during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to help environment-focused organizations continue to work and function remotely during the pandemic. Rapid response grants are available to individual nonprofit grassroots organizations and networks focused primarily on environmental protection and/or environmental justice to fund tools & technology, training, and related resources needed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To respond to the urgent need to reinforce tools and resources to remain effective in the near-term—while also building greater long-term results—in mid-March Mosaic surveyed environmental and environmental justice organizations regarding emergent infrastructure needs during this unprecedented time. Mosaic heard from all corners that the greatest needs right now include the following three areas, in order of importance:

  1. Tools and Technology for remote work & communications
    • Stable in-home Wi-fi connection
    • Hardware (laptops & webcams) & software (video conference software & distributed work platforms)
  2. Training for effective remote work, advocacy & connection
    • Training & best practices for remote facilitation & engagement, particularly large gatherings and remote work tools
    • Training for transitioning to digital organizing
  3. Resources for adaptive organizational operations & planning
    • Access to shared field-wide and/or specialized resources relevant to an organization’s operations (i.e. legal, admin, financial, HR, network or association memberships, academic journals)

Mosaic will make two types of grants:

  • Direct support to eligible organizations: for tools & technology, training, and resources to transition to effective remote work and communications as a result of COVID-19.
  • Support to eligible networks: for tools & technology, training, and resources for network members to transition to effective remote work and communications as a result of COVID-19. The purpose of the network support grant is to re-grant and/or directly provide infrastructure requested by network membership that aligns with the three areas of focus, including tools & technology, training, and resources for adaptation.
