Impact Taos 2021

Welcome to the 2021 Impact Taos grant cycle. In recognition of the challenges our non-profit partners have faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we want to allow as much flexibility as possible in this funding cycle. We are thrilled to be able to open this funding opportunity with all grants designated for non-profit operational support. Organizations may use operating support grants to cover day to day activities or ongoing expenses.
