Because of the war, Sustainable Israeli Palestinian Projects (SIPP) extended the deadline for submission of our mini-grant applications into January the beginning of 2024. As of January 1, we are no longer accepting applications for this round of mini-grants.

Sustainable Israeli-Palestinian Projects (SIPP) is excited to announce a second round of Mini-Grants in 2024. We hope to fund three to four grants this round.

SIPP Mini-Grants will range from $250 to $3,000. We prefer grant requests at the lower end of our range. The Mini-Grants will be for work performed during the time period July 1, 2024 through December 31, 2024. For projects whose time frame needs to vary from this schedule, please ask SIPP for approval of an exception. Note, up to 25% of the grant amount may be withheld pending timely submission of the final report.

SIPP’s mission is to support projects that engage Israeli and Palestinian communities working to further common environmental and other interests and to build meaningful connections between people in the United States and Israeli and Palestinian communities involved in these efforts.

Request for Grant Applications: SIPP is seeking grant applications from organizations doing projects that align with our mission. We prioritize work in Israel and/or Palestine and projects that have a multi-cultural (e.g. Jewish and Arab, Palestinian and Israeli, etc.) component. Priority will be given to applications that include matching financial or nonfinancial/in-kind contributions. SIPP does not give grants to individuals.

Subject areas for the Mini-Grants include but are not limited to:
  • Environmental Protection. These grants will be awarded by SIPP through “Environmentally Sustainable Projects, an Initiative of SIPP”.
    • Air, water, and soil pollution
    • Sustainable water management
    • Environmental Education
    • Improving outcomes for agriculture and food sources in a time of changing climate
