Grants & Mutual Aid

Micro Grants and Mutual Aid

This program is temporarily open to ALL local queer community members in need of support given the nexus of crises going on: earthquake, power outage, COVID-19, extreme cold, etc. Applications will be reviewed once every 2 months. 

Micro-Grant Application 

(the following is the usual criteria for this grant) 

Queer Humboldt offers micro-grants for QTBIPOC people (aka queer people who are also Black, Indigenous, Latinx/Latine, Asian and/or Pacific Islander) and projects/causes benefiting QTBIPOC community in Humboldt County and local tribal areas. Need money for a chest binder, queer themed picture books for a classroom, legal name change fees, or... ? 

We invite QTBIPOC individuals and people/groups who serve the QTBIPOC community to apply; click the link below if interested! We do, occasionally, make exceptions and grant to non BIPOC community so applicants from non BIPOC community will be considered on a case by case basis

Please know it can take a couple of months for our grant's team to meet and make decisions. If your request is time sensitive, please email us so we are aware (but it is unlikely we will be able to speed up our process).
