This fund is meant for autistic people of color applying for themselves – autistic youth of color and autistic adults of color. (This includes when an autistic person asks a trusted person to help fill out the application.)

It should take about 25 minutes on average to complete the application using this web form. There are 22 total questions beginning on the next page. Almost all of them are required.

*** We will do our best to respond to all crisis requests for funding within the next month after applying. We do our best to minimize gatekeeping as much as possible, unlike conventional grant-making and funding processes. ***

The Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color’s Interdependence, Survival, and Empowerment exists to provide direct support, mutual aid, and reparations by and for autistic people of color. We are based in the nation currently known as the United States, though our reach is global.

The Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color’s Interdependence, Survival, and Empowerment practices redistributive justice and mutual aid by returning and sharing money directly to and with autistic people of color. We provide microgrants to Black, Brown, Native/Indigenous, Asian, and mixed-race/multiracial people in the autistic community for survival, organizing, leisure, and pleasure. We are committed to the principles of Disability Justice, including leadership by those most impacted, intersectionality, anti-capitalist politic, cross-movement solidarity, interdependence, collective access, and collective liberation. Our work is grounded in commitment to ending extractive economies and building and sustaining generative economies.
