2022 CCNSF Fund Award Recipients Are Announced (Co-administered by NYUL and CCNSF)
Updated: Feb 2, 2022
In 2014, the Hispanic Federation (HF), Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), New York Urban League (NYUL), and Asian American Federation (AAF) 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.
As a result, the New York City Council allocated $2.5 million to establish the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF). This initiative has supported 564 capacity-building projects for nonprofit organizations to date. This year the New York City Council has allocated 3.755 million to support this endeavor, of which NYUL Has been awarded 1.3 million.
The New York Urban League (NYUL) in its 8th year of co-administering the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) provides awards to nonprofits across the five boroughs. Specifically, NYUL selected organizations that either primarily served a majority of African Americans as their constituency or had a 51% minority leadership as part of their board/executive staff.
The coordinating organizations – Coalition for Asian American Children and Families, Hispanic Federation, New York Urban League, and Asian American Federation have been critical in leveraging dedicated nonprofit funds from the City Council. To date, $12.25 million has been committed to the Fund, which addresses the need for capacity-building funding for nonprofit organizations in communities of color. The monies have had a considerable impact on the sustainability, growth and prosperity of many organizations providing crucial services to the most vulnerable communities in New York City. CCNSF has broad support among Council Members including the Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Asian Legislative Caucuses. Oversight of the funding is provided by the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD).
NYUL CCNSF awardees are community-based organizations from all five boroughs. They offer a varying array of services to New Yorkers, and are being funded to address a comprehensive menu of infrastructural needs including leadership development, financial management, and outcomes system development, among others. In addition to awarding the capacity building awards, the coordinating organizations will conduct several trainings on board development, financial management and fundraising for the awardees. The Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund will provide valuable support for community based organizations throughout New York City.
