REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Submission Deadline: January 30, 2023 (5:00 pm EST)
Hate crimes in major U.S. cities have risen by double‐digit percentage increases over the past two years. Bias‐motivated attacks have frequently targeted Asian Americans, Blacks, Jews, Latinos, Muslims, and members of the LGBTQI+ community. While Congress passes legislation aimed at combating hate crimes, institutions of higher education have a responsibility to be proactive in developing local college communities of trust, understanding, and inclusion.
The Chancellor allocated new funding to support strategic efforts to confront religious and ethnic discrimination on CUNY campuses. Sharing CUNY’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness, New York City College of Technology (NYCCT) celebrates the many ethnicities and cultures represented by our faculty, staff, and students, and condemns acts of hate.
Faculty, staff, and student groups are invited to submit proposals that serve the whole college community and demonstrate responsiveness to the recent uptick in anti‐Asian hate, antisemitism, racism, and other forms of discrimination.
NYCCT full time faculty and staff are eligible to apply; student groups wishing to apply should be supported by a faculty or staff advisor.
A minimum of four (4) grants of up to $3,000 will be awarded. A total of $12,000 in funding is available and will be administered through the NYCCT Business Office.
