Funding Cycle

See our August 2021 Awardees

Requirements

  • The community has land or has a core group of 2-5 people looking for land and/or housing
  • The community or project has been forming for more than 2 years
  • The community or project has a social media presence, newsletter, or website describing their activities
  • The community or project is not required to be a 501c3 or incorporated entity
  • The community or project can be located anywhere in the world.

The Council is interested in supporting BIPOC-led communities and communities that are committed to the inclusion of BIPOC. Communities that are majority white will be limited in the amount of financial support they receive. Funding for individuals will be limited to those who identify as BIPOC. Awardees from the previous cycle must wait one year before applying again.

Members of the BIPOC Council are allowed to apply for support for their community–they just have to excuse themselves from meetings where their application is being discussed.
