Atlanta Pride Committee opens application for community grants

Despite the festival’s recent cancellation, the Atlanta Pride Committee (APC) has announced a call for applications for its ongoing community reinvestment grants, as well as a brand new initiative, the “Pride in Action Fund”.

“Our ongoing Community Reinvestment Grant Fund and our new Pride in Action Fund help us identify organizations that program and deliver services that further our mission,” said APC Executive Director Jamie Fergerson. “These organizations define the very term ‘grassroots’: they need support, funding and resources to help elevate the work they provide to the community. “

“Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Atlanta Pride Festival and Parade provided a place for hundreds of thousands of people to connect with each other and with needed services from organizations serving LGBTQ +,” Ferguson continued. “This year’s cancellation of the Atlanta Pride Festival and in-person parade means community organizations will need to rethink how they reach community members who need their services, and the Pride in Action Fund s ‘strives to financially support community organizations in this work. “

Applications for the Pride in Action Fund are due September 15th and successful applications will be funded from September 18.

This year, the Community Reinvestment Grant will also focus on the impact of COVID-19 on an organization and how it is dealing with the effects of the ongoing pandemic. Exceptional requests can receive up to $ 7,500. Most prizes will be between $ 1,000 and $ 3,000.

The deadline for submitting an application for a Community Reinvestment Grant will be October 8, and successful applications will be rewarded with December 10.
