Progressive Technology Project Accepting Applications

for Spring 2001 Grants Pool

Deadline: May 16, 2001

The Progressive Technology Project

(http://www.progressivetech.org/) works to raise the

scope

and scale of technology resources available to

grassroots

organizing groups working for environmental, economic,

and

social justice.

Through its Spring 2001 grants cycle, PTP plans on

making

15-20 grants of up to ,000 to support the use of

technology by grassroots organizing groups to advance

specific aspects of their community-organizing efforts.

Grant pool funds can be used for training, technical

support, consulting, needs assessment, planning,

hardware

and software, designing applications, and setting up

systems.

To be eligible for funding, organizations must be able

to

demonstrate that they are increasing the capacity of

people

to impact public policy and hold decision-makers

account-

able locally and at other levels of government; seek to

address the underlying causes of social, economic, and

environmental problems; engage in leadership development

with people traditionally excluded from civic decision-

making processes; be directed by and accountable to

their

members/constituents and make decisions democratically;

and work strategically to empower low-income people and

communities of color.

PTP will only accept proposals from organizations

focused

on and based in the United States. The program will not

fund organizations it has funded within the past two

years

or that primarily engage in the following activities:

scholarships/fellowships, technical service provision,

direct services, technology projects unrelated to grass-

roots social-change efforts, child-care programs,

emergency

shelters, medical services, books, publications, capital

improvement, and job training or readiness projects.

For complete guidelines and a proposal cover sheet,
