About this funder:




Islamic Relief USA provides relief and development in a dignified manner regardless of gender, race, or religion, and works to empower individuals in their communities and give them a voice in the world.

Islamic Relief USA Grants

IRUSA provides grants to nonprofit organizations throughout the country, to provide access to quality health care; to promote sustainable socio-economic development; and to elevate the standard of living of those in need.

Refugee and Immigration Services

Refugee and Immigrant Services grants address and meet the various needs of refugees and immigrants in the United States. Grant partners should implement programs that promote self-sufficiency and resilience within these specific communities. Programs can range from English translation services to workforce development classes. The grant-funded programs should dignify newcomers as they adjust and integrate into their new lives in the United States.

Healthcare Clinics

Healthcare clinic grants help bridge the gaps in healthcare services and address various health disparities in the United States. Grant partners offer primary and/or specialty care to patients who are often under-represented and under-served. Partners may be operating mobile or permanent clinic facilities, bringing health and wellness services to those in need while addressing social determinants of health. Services should be provided with the goal to improve the health and wellness of local communities.

Food Security

Food security grants tackle the growing problem of irregular availability and lack of access to healthy foods across the United States. These grant-funded programs should create solutions to problems ranging from the high cost of healthy foods to limited understanding of personal nutrition needs. Grant partners may operate food pantries, food banks, soup kitchens and/or feeding programs. The programs recognize and address the detrimental social, economic and health effects of food insecurity on local communities.

Community Development

Community development grants create an opportunity to fund unique programs across the United States that serve three primary goals. First, they are intended to support projects that engage volunteers in charitable activities, while bringing members of the community together across the lines of religion, race or national origin that sometimes divide us. Second, they support projects that address social issues, such as the reduction or prevention of violence (including domestic violence), community cohesion, or the inclusion of marginalized populations. Third, they support projects that expand the work of projects in the health, refugee services or food security sectors to ensure a more integrated and holistic approach to the challenges that drive the need for services.

Unified Seasonal Events

The Unified Seasonal Events grant refers to a year-long collaborative effort between IRUSA and partner organizations to implement IRUSA’s flagship events in their communities. These events include the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), Qurbani Distribution, and Day of Dignity. Starting in 2021, the Ramadan Food Box Service and the Ramadan Food Pantry Grant* will be a part of this ‘One Year. One Agreement’ initiative. Once entered into a grant agreement with IRUSA, the partner organization implements a minimum of __ of these events in their local community to address the basic needs of the clients they serve.
