Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) Request for Applications

CACF is pleased to announce that the RFA for the FY2019 City Council Initiative – The Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund is now available!  Please see the details below.  Applications are due October 5, 2018.


In 2014, the Hispanic Federation (HF), Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), and New York Urban League (NYUL) formed an alliance to provide capacity-building support to Black, Latino, and Asian-led community-based organizations (CBOs) throughout New York City’s five boroughs. These three organizations, along with the Asian American Federation and Black Agency Executives, developed this initiative to generate new levels of support for the city’s organizations. As a result, the New York City Council allocated $2.5 million to establish the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) in Fiscal Year 2015, an amount that was increased to $3.7 million in FY 2018 and $3.755 million in FY 2019. This initiative has supported 309 capacity-building projects for nonprofit organizations to date. Thanks to the continued support from the New York City Council, we are pleased to announce the release of the Request for Application (RFA) for a fifth round of awards.
