In December, HAF+WRCF disbursed $81,000 in Strategy Grants to groups and projects in Humboldt, Del Norte, Curry and Trinity counties, furthering a healthy, just and equitable region where community members and families can thrive.
Recipients include those with projects and programs supporting cultural belonging, language revitalization, disability justice, equitable farming initiatives, and response efforts to the rise of anti-Asian hate and violence.
- Curry County’s Northwest American Indian Coalition’s “Healing of the Canoe Program,” which will provide culturally-grounded life skills and support for youth to foster a sense of cultural belonging and cultural revitalization.
- The Karuk Tribe for its Language Revitalization Strategic Planning.
- Tri-County Independent Living in Del Norte County for its sensory friendly and mobility accessible sensory room, and counseling space for clients, community members, and staff.
- Trinity County Resource Conservation District for Trinity County’s Farmers Market Initiative.
- The Humboldt Asian and Pacific Islanders in Solidarity (HAPI) for capacity support.
