About the Grants

Tikkun-in-Action is a program operated by GRID, JDC’s platform for disaster response and international development. Tikkun-in Action provides training, networking and funding opportunities for people who are inspired by Jewish values and experiences in order to create impactful projects serving vulnerable people, including refugees and other underserved populations, living in their local communities.

When is the Deadline

Grant Application Form Coming Soon

Please note that this is the first time JDC GRID will be allocating grants from the Tikkun in Action Fund.  Our grants pool is limited and allocations will range from $5,000 to $18,000 for any individual grant. Funds will be awarded in the second half of 2019 for project implementation in 2019 & 2020. Finalists will be asked to participate in a zoom interview with the vetting committee.
