Race Forward Has Funding Opportunity

  • Thursday, February 22, 2024

Race Forward and Americans for the Arts are seeking proposals from local organizations for funding to participate in the first annual Cultural Week of Action on Race and Democracy this Sept. 27-Oct. 5.

Organizers anticipate funding 12 to 15 sites. Participation in the CWA will also be encouraged and open to organizations not requesting funding. This is an opportunity to deepen commitments to racial justice and inclusive democracy through cultural activities, said officials. 

Officials said, "We are excited to sponsor select projects to encourage deep, bold, and long-term change. Through a competitive process, 12-15 local communities that represent the diversity of our country will receive $25,000-$40,000 for cultural organizers and community partners to design and implement projects that align with the theme of Building the Bigger We."

Proposals are due on Friday, March 29. Learn more and apply here.
