Build Your Future: Skill Building Funding Opportunity
Madison-area refugees are able to apply for funds and support for education and career development as part of our Skill Development Initiative. Those interested in furthering their English language proficiency, pursuing higher education, developing vocational skills, or starting or growing a business are eligible to apply in 2022 for mini-grants from the American Rescue Plan grant awarded to ODFR.
Grant awards pay 75% of funds requested, starting at $100, up to a maximum of $3,000. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, with notifications sent once a month, as long as funds last. *Not all requests can be honored.
