Financial Support to Build NEW and EXISTING Local AVP Councils and Regions

AVP-USA is offering financial support to AVP local councils and Regional Organizations, supporting three specific areas:

1.  Financial Support from AVP-USA to Build NEW Local AVP Councils

The purpose of this funding is to support the development of new AVP Councils by identifying new local facilitators and seed new local AVP Councils in regions lacking our presence.

2. Financial Support from AVP-USA to Strengthen EXISTING Local AVP Councils

The purpose of this funding is to enhance the competence and self-confidence of existing local facilitators and strengthen the quality of their workshops. This could include support in restarting at institutions paused due to the pandemic.

3.  Financial Support from AVP-USA to Strengthen Regional AVP Organizations

The purpose of this funding is to enhance the communication and interaction of Local Groups within their Regional structure, and to support AVP within the entire Region.

All Grants are available up to $500 each, depending on funds being available at AVP-USA.
Currently there IS money available!

If your local AVP chapter is looking to expand or restart from the pandemic, then the CLARG Outreach grants could be just what you’re looking for. AVP-USA will be matching funds, up to $1000 per group, to support newly-created Local Outreach Coordinator positions.  A maximum of $3000 has been allocated for this pilot program. So, if your Local Group can provide some funds for an outreach position and are interested in being matched by AVP-USA, your group should apply!

The grants are designed to help Local Groups increase their ability to compensate staff, providing necessary resources for Local Groups to expand. Local Groups are encouraged to put together a plan for how the funds might be used and how the local group could benefit from an outreach coordinator in their area.  For example, an Outreach Coordinators might do any of the following

  • recruit participants for workshops
  • edit/create website material
  • update social media sites
  • advertise workshops to local media/local organizations
  • plan logistics for community workshops (hospitality, food, etc.)

Add manuals to Support Grant or just restock shelves in need of manuals! 

$3,000 has been designated for a new Manual Grant (for grants up to $500 each for local groups to purchase manuals only). This could be awarded to your local group in addition to the Program Support Grant, especially for new groups trying to get established. It could also be awarded to existing local groups who are finding it difficult to fund manuals for their programs. CLARG has seen that some groups need to go beyond the current parameters of the Program Support Grant for things manuals and this would allow AVP-USA to make a larger impact with their grant funding.
