The Refugee Community Grant Fund advisory team awarded $165,000 to 19 refugee-led or refugee-serving organizations. More than half of the funded proposals went to organizations new to this program.

Funded proposals touched on various topics from urban farming to culinary programs, career development and pathway programs to case management and family stabilization.

The Refugee Community Grant Fund is one of our five Community Interest Funds. Anyone can donate to these resident-led grant programs.


2022 Refugee Community Grant Fund Recipients

Grants made through our Community Interest Funds are strategic investments meant to increase access and equity. We ask community members to lead grant processes using their own power and understanding. Each committee is made up of residents who come from or identify with the population being served. They review proposals and decide which projects to fund based on the needs they are seeing in their community.

The next grant cycle will open on January 1, 2023.
