Project Description

Open Technology Fund´s Rapid Response Fund

Type of project:  The Rapid Response Fund aims to facilitate the digital emergency response community to resolve threats in a timely and comprehensive manner for individuals, communities, and organizations whose free expression has recently been repressed. The Fund offers two types of support to organizations, activists, journalists, and other human rights defenders facing digital attacks and emergencies of various kinds: 1) technological services from trusted service partners and 2) direct financial support for the many needs that cannot be fulfilled by available service partners. For either form of support, the process starts with a single application. Support is only available through the Rapid Response Fund when there is a clear time-sensitive digital emergency in which an applicant is seeking short-term and urgent support.

Location: Worldwide

Eligibility: Any organization or individual may apply.

Grant size:  $50,000 for a period of six months or less
