World Hunger Year Invites Applications for Harry Chapin Self-Reliance Awards
Deadline: June 15, 2006

World Hunger Year (<a href=""></a>) and the Harry Chapin Foundation (<a href=""></a>)
invite applications for the Harry Chapin Self-Reliance Awards program. The awards honor innovation and creativity in grassroots efforts against hunger and poverty.

The awards program distributes cash grants of up to $5,000 each to outstanding grassroots organizations in the United States that have "moved beyond charity to creating change in their communities." Organizations selected as winners are judged outstanding for their innovative and creative approaches to fighting domestic hunger and poverty by empowering people and building self-reliance.

Applicants should be community-based and located in the United States; have a total budget for the program not exceeding $500,000; be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; have replicable programs that go beyond emergency food, shelter, and other types of assistance; engage in program activities that address the root causes of poverty; and be able to demonstrate alignment between program outcomes and organization goals.

WHY and the Harry Chapin Foundation will not consider applications from organizations providing only emergency services.

See the WHY Web site for complete program information.
