Travel Subsidies for the Racial Equity Learning Program
To ensure that travel costs are not a barrier to accessing the services offered in The Racial Equity Learning Program, The Foundation will provide a subsidy to help offset travel costs for any grantee organization that participates in a service that requires significant travel (e.g., air travel, overnight stay) and expresses a need for this type of support.
The subsidy will be a flat-rate per individual from your organization who travels in order to participate in the service. The exact amount will be determined by the amount of travel required for the service you are ultimately matched with and the amount of overall demand for travel subsidy support among grantees. We will do our best to subsidize your travel costs as fully as possible, however, the subsidy may not cover 100 percent of your costs.
If you will require a travel subsidy, you will be able to let us know when you accept your matched service later this summer.
Because the subsidies are awarded as a flat rate per participant, you will not be asked to submit receipts or proof of purchase to receive the subsidy.
The subsidy check distribution will happen in two batches in 2019 (likely about April 2019 and about July 2019). You will receive a check once you have participated in some or all the travel related to your service. More details to follow on timing once services and grantee matches are finalized.
This page will be updated with additional information about the subsidy as it becomes available.
