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 2018 LGBTQ Community Needs Assessment. Horizons invests in organizations and projects that create a world where all LGBTQ people live freely and fully.
To create the LGBTQ COVID-19 Response Emergency Fund, Horizons needed to reallocate a significant portion of funds originally earmarked for the 2020 Community Issues grant cycle. The remaining funds available for the 2020 Community Issues RFP came from Horizons’ regranting partnerships with other foundations, and these partnerships came with a specific funding focus on arts and culture.
The below information about eligibility and process is focused on the modified Community Issues cycle for 2020. Information about Community Issues in 2021 will be announced later this year. We are not accepting applications at this time.
We awarded over $400,000 to our grantee partners in our 2019 Community Issues cycle.
