Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $20,000 to Washington, DC community-based nonprofit organizations to enhance the quality of life for African-born residents. Funding is intended for programs and activities within the priority areas of education, civic engagement, jobs and economic development, health and wellness, youth engagement, arts and creative economy, and public safety.

Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate strong evidence of responding to one of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s policy priorities: focusing on the community's youngest residents; transforming workforce training; and creating economic opportunities.

The African Community Grant is intended to fund programs that provide culturally and linguistically targeted services and resources to advance the District’s African residents. The target population for this grant is the District’s African-born community and their children. Through this grant, MOAA looks to ensure equitable, as well as culturally and linguistically targeted engagement of the most isolated and hard to reach segments of this population. 

Applicants will need to demonstrate how they will engage specific segments of the community. Applicants should also indicate opportunities for the Mayor’s participation in the grant-funded program in particular, or in the applying organization in general.
