Grant Details

Application Deadline: The application deadline has passed.

Purpose: A total of $100,000 is available in one-year grants to community-based organizations that provide programs and services to residents of Allston-Brighton. The Harvard Allston Partnership Fund is committed to offering more flexible funding this year as a way of helping local grantee partners support emergency needs prompted by the COVID-19 crisis. This change will also allow grantees to apply for funds to be used to support COVID-19 relief efforts. The HAPF is looking forward to seeing the myriad ways partners generate thoughtful and immediate responses that will best serve our affected neighbors.

Please see the detailed instructions in the Request for Proposals (RFP) for more information. The RFP contains specific priorities and conditions for funding.
