2016 Midwest Lodging Subsidy Application

The subsidy application deadline has now passed. We are no longer accepting applications.

AIUSA is providing limited subsidies in the form of lodging for 2 nights (October 7 & 8) for the 2016 Midwest Regional Conference in Detroit, MI. Subsidies are intended for active AI members and activist or those hoping to become active who otherwise would be unable to attend the conference due to financial constraints.

To be eligible for a subsidy you must apply with a group of four people who are committed to registering and attending the entire 3-day conference, working one 3-hour volunteer shift, and meeting the requirements included in the application below. We will only award one room with two beds per every four applicants; however, you may opt to book a second room on your own and split the cost with your fellow applicants if you would like more space.
