About This Grant

To help ISPU develop an annual operational plan and expand the Muslims for American Progress (MAP) project, which advances inclusion of American Muslims by sharing often overlooked stories, quantitative data, and photo narratives of American Muslims who are contributing to the health, happiness, and wellbeing of their fellow Americans. ISPU conducts objective, solution-seeking research that empowers American Muslims to develop their community and fully contribute to democracy and pluralism in the United States. ISPU has been at the forefront of discovering trends and opportunities that impact the American Muslim community. ISPU’s research aims to educate the general public and enable community change agents, the media, and policymakers to make evidence-based decisions.
