Data Center community action grants
Supporting community projects
Meta’s annual Data Center Community Action Grants program provides direct funding to schools, registered nonprofits and community organizations in locations where we have an operational data center.
Meta Data Center Community Action Grants
Fall 2023-Spring 2024 applications are closed.
Our Data Center Community Action Grants are one of many ways that Meta gives back to communities where we have an operational data center. These grants support projects that:
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.
- In Europe, registered not for profit organizations and government entities (including state-run schools and municipalities) are eligible for grants.
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.
We are not accepting new applications at this time. Grant recipients will be announced in Spring 2024.
