From the Tennessee Disability Coalition –
The Tennessee Disability Coalition’s Small Grant Program is now accepting Letters of Interest for the Fall 2021 grant cycle. The Board of Directors of the Tennessee Disability Coalition (TDC) has decided to hold a special grant offering in Fall 2021 to support disability community-centric storytelling initiatives. Initiatives that focus on serving underserved or intersectional communities will receive preference.
The application link closes on September 20, 2021.
Storytelling can be a powerful tool! Community-centric storytelling can support community members learning to tell their stories, policy change, public health communication, and community development, for example. Effective, ethical storytelling initiatives require intentionality and sufficient resources
Community-centric storytelling puts the community first. While important initiatives, storytelling with the primary goal to amplify brand awareness or raise money for nonprofits will not be eligible for this funding.
Initiatives that focus on serving underserved or intersectional communities will receive preference
You might be wondering, what is disability community-centric storytelling?
- “Disability” means any kind of diagnosis, chronic illness, special healthcare need or disability.
- We are interested in supporting community-centric storytelling initiatives in any part of what is a large and diverse disability community.
