Peace First Rapid Response Grants to Address COVID-19

The Peace First is launching a rapid response grant process to help young people around the world lead projects that address community impacts of COVID-19, from providing meals to elderly neighbors to launching digital mental health campaigns to support youth feeling isolated. Rapid response grants are open to young people between the ages of 13-25, anywhere in the world, starting today.

Grants of up to $250 will be pre-approved for immediate costs associated with your ongoing or imminent social action project.


  • You must be between the ages of 13-25 to apply
  • You may apply as an individual or a team
  • Your project should address the secondary effects of COVID-19 (i.e. mental health, educational disruption, food insecurity, economic insecurity, supply shortages, etc)
  • Young people from any region are welcome to apply.


You will provide the following in the application:

  • Brief information about yourself
  • A description of the injustice you want to solve
  • A compassionate insight (a brief theory of change describing the project you hope to lead)
  • A plan detailing the steps you plan to take to carry out your project and a mini-grant request of up to $250 USD
  • A brief section to determine your eligibility
  • You will also create a user profile on PeaceFirst.Org. This is a very brief process that should take no more than 5 minutes.
