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.
Because we launched our LGBTQ COVID-19 Response Emergency Fund this spring, held Give OUT Day during the summer, and are working on deploying additional COVID-19 funding opportunities, the Community Issues request for proposal (RFP) will not be released until later this year.
We are still working on what Community Issues will look like given the above, but please plan on the cycle being later and looking a little different than usual this year.
We awarded over $400,000 to our grantee partners in our latest Community Issues cycle.
