Securing Communities Against Hate Crimes

The Securing Communities Against Hate Crimes grant is currently in its fourth cycle of funding. Approximately $70 million has been awarded to schools and camps in the first three cycles, starting in the 2017-18 school year. This year, another $25 million will be awarded to schools, camps, and for the first time through this funding, shuls. Teach staff have been busy writing grants for around 25 organizations and are also assisting many of the schools and shuls that we’ve secured grants for in previous funding cycles navigate the procurement process.  

We’re extremely proud of our work on securing grants, securing 32 grants in the last cycle of funding and have put together a great team to assist organizations with every step of this RFP. Our implementation efforts are a natural outgrowth of this work, and we’re happy to assist any organization with this process.
