In April 2013, African community-based organizations and community leaders requested that the Mayor and DC Council allocate funds to be distributed competitively to community-based organizations serving Africans. Following this, a Budget Support Act title awarded the Mayor’s Office on African Affairs grant making authority for the first time and allocated a total of $100,000 to organizations serving the rapidly growing African community in the District.
African Community Grant Program
The African Community Grant funds community-based organizations whose programs provide culturally and linguistically targeted services and resources to the District’s African residents and businesses. These programs reflect the Mayor’s priority areas and District African's documented needs and priorities.
