CARE Grant Program

Prairieaction Foundation (PAF) is committed to funding research that leads to community awareness related to issues of violence and abuse in our community, and specifically provides funds for research that engages in solution-focused outcomes that lead to programs to keep our communities safer.

The CARE Grant Program promotes our goal to support community-based research into solutions to violence and abuse. The Program funds grassroots, community-based organizations to do action-oriented research that will improve their programs and identify effective strategies to alleviate and prevent violence and abuse in their communities. CARE Grant funding cannot be used to fund administrative costs for partner academic institutions.
