IS AUSTIN MUTUAL AID ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR GRANT DISTRIBUTION?
AMA is NOT currently accepting proposals for grant distribution as our funding has been reallocated.
AMA RAISED A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF FUNDS IN THE WINTER FREEZE OF 2021. WHAT HAS AUSTIN MUTUAL AID DONE WITH THE FUNDS RAISED?
We have allocated those funds back into the community. For more details, please check out our End of Year Report here
WHY DID AMA CHOOSE TO DISTRIBUTE THE FUNDS IN SUCH A WAY, AND HOW DID AMA DISTRIBUTE SAID FUNDS?
As these funds were raised by and for the community, it was not AMA’s decision to make; it belongs to the community. AMA engaged with the community, starting with the organizations that were integral to the delivery of services during the storm to get community buy-in as to how the funds should be divided between organizations that are supporting the core mission.
I see that in Spring of 2021, Austin Mutual Aid social channels sent multiple messages that dishonored Black and Trans People. What happened?
We at Austin Mutual Aid would like to acknowledge and apologize for mistakes made toward the Black and Trans community of Austin and Central Texas. We took significant steps to address this harm by multiple avenues.
This is our full statement of Apology.
WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF AMA?
We are establishing Austin Mutual Aid as a 501c3 Non-profit. We will continue to support our community in building relationships of support & mutual aid via our Facebook page link here as well as continuing to develop our outreach project, education and advocacy by prioritizing the building of relationships & community support.
I have a project I’d like AMA join me in!
