Applications Open from September 11 – October 20, 2023
Meta’s annual Data Center Community Action Grants program provides direct funding to schools, registered nonprofits and community organizations in locations where they have an operational data center.
Meta is committed to playing a positive role and investing in the long-term vitality of the communities where they have data centers. One of the ways they do this is by providing grants for projects that address critical community needs by:
- Putting the power of technology to use for community benefit
- Connecting people online or off
- Improving local science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education
Grant applications will be accepted by eligible organizations in communities where Meta has an operational data center (see eligible communities).
- In the United States, 501(c)(3) organizations and public schools are eligible for grants. Schools are encouraged to notify the superintendent of desired grants to ensure the most competitive and feasible applications are submitted.
Schools may apply for multiple grants. All other organizations are limited to one application per cycle. Projects must have demonstrable metrics that can be publicly reported. Grant funds are intended to be used within one year of the grant award date.
The application process is open from Monday, September 11, 2023 through Friday, October 20, 2023. Grant recipients will be announced in Spring 2024.
