Our flagship funding program, Community Issues, provides general-operating and project-specific grants in support of the LGBTQ community in the nine counties of the SF Bay Area, where our community still faces significant challenges, according to our Community Needs Assessment. Horizons invests in organizations and projects that create a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully.
The Community Issues Program is not currently accepting proposals. Applications will be accepted again in July 2020.
