Grants of up to $50,000 are available for local Arizona non-profits that provide a safety net of services and assistance to vulnerable populations within the community. The purpose of these grants is to provide additional resources to organizations that help meet the basic needs of underserved individuals, many of whom have few places to turn in time of need. Priority will be given to organizations that offer compassionate, competent, and high-quality assistance with issues related to food, shelter, and affordable health-care, with additional preference given to proposals that focus multiple resources on a single vulnerable population.

Examples may include: (A) healthcare, language services and legal intervention to improve the quality of life of incarcerated, mentally ill people whose primary language is Spanish; (B) healthcare, housing, and/or job training assistance to homeless veterans; or (C) basic needs provided to a targeted geography, school district, or similar group.

Another important criterion for selection is that recipients of aid be educated as to their political
rights and encouraged to register to vote and participate in future elections.
