Field Grant for Early Childhood

New Futures is excited to announce a new Field Grant opportunity to COVID-19 Equity Taskforce partners and others! Through our work in advocacy, we have come to understand that community-based partners working to advance health equity are often challenged by funding restrictions, which can prevent meaningful participation in policy and advocacy efforts.  By providing small field grants and advocacy stipends, New Futures hopes to increase participation and engagement from regional partners, increasing the profile of equity issues impacted by COVID-19 across the state.

New Futures invites partner organizations and individuals to a submit applications for two Field Grant opportunities for the 2021 legislative session. Field Grants will be awarded to support two categories of advocacy in the 2021 legislative session, (1) Taskforce/Coalition Participation and (2) Individual Advocacy. Field Grants will provide funding to allow partners and individuals to directly participate in state level advocacy and lobbying activities around identified COVID-19 health equity policy priorities with the goal of building equity and justice for marginalized communities in NH.
