Proposal Process

Impact1890 will not be awarding any new grants for 2021; only those organizations that were awarded a one-year grant for 2020 will be considered for a follow-on grant in 2021. Please be on the lookout in the spring of 2021 for an announcement regarding 2022 Impact1890 grants or sign up to receive updates here.

Impact1890 utilizes WizeHive, an online system, to collect proposals, review submissions and manage follow-up reports.
