Grants & Mutual Aid

Micro Grants and Mutual Aid

We do our best to review applications once every 2 months, but it occasionally takes longer than that. 

Queer Humboldt offers micro-grants for QTBIPOC people (aka queer and trans 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, gas money to go to drag workshops, 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 queer non BIPOC community so applicants from non BIPOC community will be considered on a case by case basis. We want these funds to reach as many people as possible, so please only ask for what you need and limit requests to no more than one per year.
