Internet Society Foundation’s Resiliency Program 2024

The Internet Society Foundation’s Resiliency Program 2024 supports projects that increase network resiliency in communities prone to natural disasters, so that these communities will be better able to prepare for and withstand the effects of natural disasters on Internet connectivity.

Program Overview

With the constant threat of natural and climate-related disasters, people around the world are experiencing more and more disruption in their lives and to their livelihoods. The damage from these disasters often interrupts Internet connectivity and isolates people from family, friends and information in a time of crisis and vulnerability. The Resiliency program aims to provide support for these communities to be prepared for and reconnect to the Internet quickly after natural and climate-related disasters strike.

The Internet Society Foundation will support organizations with experience and direct knowledge of Internet resiliency to deploy resilient Internet infrastructure and provide training to local stakeholders on its use in the event or in the aftermath of natural and climate-related disasters.

Examples of the types of projects the Foundation will support includes:

    • Supporting development of community networks
    • Hardening data centers and IXPs against environmental threats
    • Fortifying sub-sea cables and/or stations
    • Supporting ISPs to upgrade infrastructure
    • Strengthening capacity of communities to maintain, repair, and re-establish Internet connectivity


  • Grants up to USD $500,000 will be awarded for projects up to 24 months in duration.
