HCN is committed to fostering innovation and cultural vitality within San Francisco's Black community. Our two distinct Mini-Grants Programs are designed to support social justice initiatives and cultural preservation efforts.

  1. Community Innovation Mini-Grants: Empowering marginalized groups within the Black/African American community—youth, LGBTQI+ individuals, and those facing homelessness or housing instability—this program fuels social change through grants that encourage community-driven innovation.

  2. Black Cultural Preservation Mini-Grants: This program focuses on celebrating and maintaining the rich Black heritage of San Francisco. By funding local arts, history, and cultural projects, it aims to fortify the community's identity and promote social equity.
