Grants Chair MJ Bienvenu announces the 2016/2017 application is now available for $5,000 grant to innovative projects left by Deaf people with their sponsoring Deaf-run non-profit organizations in the areas of arts, education, research, media, and activism.

The research aspect would focus on those potential areas: language, economics, mental health, culture, science, and medicine all through the Deafhood lens. The Foundation also funds the Deafhood Media Challenge where we invite innovative filmmaking efforts from the Deaf community.
