NAAFA Fat Community Project Grants

eTradeWire News/10573717
NAAFA's new mini-grant program is designed to encourage fat activists to use their creativity to build and strengthen fat community across the US.

LAS VEGAS - eTradeWire -- The mission of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA) is to change perceptions of fat and end size discrimination through advocacy, education, and support.  The current state of our world requires that we get even more creative than ever to accomplish these goals.

With these thoughts in mind, the NAAFA Board of Directors has decided to create a special grant fund. The goal of the Fat Community Project Fund grant program is to provide seed funds to NAAFA members and other members of fat community who wish to deepen their commitment to advocacy and support for fat people. This could include creating projects that further educate fat people or the general public about fat rights.

Grant amounts ranging from $50 - $500 per project will be issued on a quarterly basis. Only one grant per project will be given, and grants are limited to projects within the U.S.  More information--including requirements, timeline and the on-line application--is available on NAAFA's new website at: https://naafa.org/comm-inv-grants
