CLAGS Receives Ford Foundation Grant

The Ford Foundation has renewed its support of CLAGS’s International Resource Network with a grant
of $361,000 to be paid over the course of three years. Three years ago, the Ford Foundation made a generous
grant to CLAGS for the initiation of the process of creating the IRN, including organizing regional
meetings and doing outreach for the project and setting up the project’s governance structures and infrastructure.
With this most recent grant the IRN will implement Regional Editorial Boards, including IRNAfrica
and IRN-Latin America/Caribbean, as well as covering administration costs and long term development
as the IRN becomes the democratic, participatory, and user-driven website envisioned by hundreds of
people around the globe over the last five years.
