Grants of $1,000 and $5,000, and one grant of $10,000 to Israel immigrants from North America or the United Kingdom for initiatives and projects that are focused on building communities and creating connections. Funding is intended for Olim-led activities that seek to create and facilitate communication and connectedness. Projects should show a commitment to encouraging community growth and development, and to activities and programs that benefit Olim.

The 2019 Initiative for Zionist Innovation is all about community – how to improve and enhance the opportunity to integrate and strengthen your neighborhood. With mentorship from community builders, networking assistance, seed funding, and logistical support NBN believes that Olim will have better acclimation rates.
