InfrastructureUSA is a project of the nonprofit Open Space Institute, Inc., as part of its Citizen Action Program. Fiscal sponsorship is a financial and legal system by which a legally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit (such as OSI) provides limited financial and legal oversight for a project initiated independently by a group. That project might be a one-time project or an organization that does not have its own 501(c)(3) status. Once sponsored in this way, the project is eligible to solicit and receive grants and tax-deductible contributions that are normally available only to 501(c)(3) organizations.
