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 (MOAA) grant making authority for the first time, and allocated a total of $100,000 dollars to organizations serving the rapidly growing African community in the District.
African Community Grant Program
The African Community Grant is intended to fund community-based organizations whose programs provide culturally and linguistically targeted services and resources to the District’s African residents and businesses. These programs should reflect the Mayor’s top priority areas, and the documented needs and priorities of the District’s African constituency.
