Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF)



The New York Urban League in collaboration with the Asian American Federation, Coalition for Asian American Children and Families and Hispanic Federation, is pleased to announce the application is now available for the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) 2017.


Application deadline:  September 30, 2016


As part of the New York City Council Fiscal Year 2017 Budget, the City Council allocated $2.5 million for the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) intended for nonprofits serving majority Asian, Latino and/or Black communities to build organizational capacity through board development, financial and organization management grants. CCNSF aims to build the capacity of New York City nonprofits, in recognition of the fact that organizations led by people of the community are best equipped to meet the needs of their constituents. CCNSF also intends to promote learning among Community Based Organization leaders.


We encourage all organizations that are eligible to apply. This fund is significant to ensuring that organizations that serve communities of color receive the support they deserve and need!


If you have any questions, please contact Victor Valentine at: or 212-926-8000 x124.
