    This chapter offers practical guidance for funding language revitalization projects, particularly for language activists and community members. Some organizations devoted to endangered languages provide grants for revitalization efforts; funding may also be available from government bodies (mainly in the US and Canada) and other grants and scholarships. For smaller projects, crowd funding and other community initiatives have the additional benefits of raising awareness of the language revitalization program and involving the wider community. The factors that reviewers consider in assessing formal funding proposals are discussed, including the importance, feasibility and design of the project; the applicant’s connection to the community and ability to complete the work; and the appropriateness of the budget, including guidance on common budget categories and expenses. The capsule reports on a survey investigating attitudes of NGOs in Guatemala towards language revitalization; local organizations and institutions with a vested interest in local people were more likely to provide practical and financial support for revitalization initiatives.
