About the Rapid Response Fund category


The Rapid Response Fund provides short-term, urgently needed support in the face of time-sensitive internet freedom violations.

Rapid Response aims to facilitate the digital emergency response community to resolve threats in a timely and comprehensive manner for individuals, communities, and organizations whose free expression has recently been repressed. To resolve digital emergencies, OTF offers both direct financial support as well as technical services from trusted partners to high-risk people and organizations, such as bloggers, cyber activists, journalists, and human rights defenders.
