Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund Request for Applications and Community Briefings

In 2014, the Hispanic Federation (HF), Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), and New York Urban League (NYUL) formed an alliance to provide capacity-building support to Black, Latino and Asian-led community-based organizations (CBOs) throughout New York City’s five boroughs. These three organizations, along with the Asian American Federation and Black Agency Executives, developed this initiative to generate new levels of support for the city’s organizations. As a result, the New York City Council allocated $2.5 million to establish the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) in Fiscal Year 2015, an amount that was increased to $3.7 million in Fiscal Year 2018. This initiative has supported 218 capacity-building projects for nonprofit organizations to date.

Thanks to the continued support from the New York City Council, we are pleased to announce the release of the Request for Applications (RFA) for a fourth round of awards.

Application Deadline: December 6, 2017
