ACT Welcoming & Belonging Grants Info Session

ACT Welcoming & Belonging Grants Info Session Event Logo


Date: 06/20/2024 - 06/20/2024

Time: 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Last year, ACT for Alexandria completed its strategic plan, led by a diverse, community-led planning team. ACT was selected to participate in a community of practice hosted by CFLeads and Welcoming America to help foster inclusive communities and deepen welcoming and belonging work. Through this program, ACT is seeking to identify ways to support a community where everyone can truly thrive and feel like they belong. Our goal is to foster connections, collaboration and belonging for everyone – whether they are a newcomer, recent immigrant or someone who has lived here for generations.

In celebration of our 20th Anniversary, ACT will be offering $20,000 in grants for activities, events or projects supporting welcoming and belonging to be carried out during Welcoming Week – September 13-22, 2024.  This initiative is not merely about hosting events; it is about nurturing a sense of community and connection. We anticipate these grants will serve as a chance for dialogue, understanding, mutual respect and celebrating our diversity. We plan to award ten grants of up to $2,000 each. Applications will open on June 20 and close on July 18.

ACT is hosting a virtual information session on June 20 at 9:30am – it will also be recorded and posted to the ACT website. To attend, please register here.
