The Intercultural Harmony Program, an initiative of the Laura Jane Musser Fund, promotes mutual understanding and cooperation between groups and citizens of different cultural backgrounds within defined geographical areas. Support is provided to nonprofits working together on projects with common goals. Projects must be intercultural, rather than focused on a single culture, and must demonstrate tangible benefits in the larger community. Funded projects can be carried out in a number of areas, including the arts, community service, and youth activities. The deadline is Oct. 16. Rural Initiative grants, which have the same focus areas but help rural communities, are due Nov. 6.
