LGBTQ Community Grant
Mayor Bowser and the Mayor’s Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Affairs awarded a combined $75,000 in grant funding to six community-based organizations that serve LGBTQ homeless youth and families in Washington, DC. The grants are intended to strengthen the organizational capacity, support leadership development, and ensure sustainability among nonprofits serving LGBTQ youth and young adults in DC. Grants were made in amounts between $10,000 and $15,000.
“We look forward to partnering with these community organizations to serve the needs of our LGBTQ youth,” said Mayor Bowser. “Our DC values include making homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring, and we will continue this work until every resident has a safe place to call home.”
