One Omaha created a rapid response mini-grant to help activists engage the wider community to mobilize for racial justice in the Omaha metropolitan area. You can apply for up to $500 to support grassroots organizing efforts.
Funding is still available!
Examples of what we are seeking to fund include (but are not limited to):
- Water, snacks, masks, and first aid kits for demonstrations or rallies
- Fees related to public protests such as permits, barricades, or PA system rental
- Printing of materials, signs, or t-shirts
- Costs to design community resources
What we cannot fund:
- Activities related to lobbying, politics, or supporting candidates for public office

We strongly encourage coalitions and informal groups led by people of color to apply. You do not need a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status or a fiscal sponsor to receive funding.
Applicants are notified of funding decisions within 24 hours. Grant awards are decided on by One Omaha staff and funds are sent via check.
Who is One Omaha?
One Omaha builds tools and resources to support community-led projects. We recognize Omaha has a deep-rooted history of covert and overt racism. Redlining, racial covenants, and housing discrimination are a few practices among many that contribute to why our organization exists – we serve people aspiring to reverse the effects of racism in their neighborhood that are still present.

Thank you for applying and bravely doing the work that you do.
