Grants to USA grassroots social change organizations in multiple states to support the anti-racism movement. Applicants that have not been funded in the last three years must contact the office prior to applying. Funding is intended for organizations that address the root causes of injustice. Eligible applicants are located in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Haymarket funds both start-up groups (emerging) and groups that are more established (movement building).

  1. Emerging Groups: Grassroots groups that are start-ups or are in the earlier stages of development. Organizations at this stage often focus on self-definition, understanding the root causes of the problems they are facing, leadership development, and capacity building. Emerging groups are typically less than five years old; however, groups coming out of a dormant phase or going through a period of transformation or rebirth may also fall into this category.
  2. Movement Building Groups: More developed organizations that have a well established identity and position within their community, a clear track record, and are actively working to strengthen the social justice movement. Effective organizations at this stage have a clear vision and mission, a solid understanding of the root causes of the problems they face, strong constituency leadership, well developed organizing strategies, and a demonstrated commitment to anti-racist movement building.
