The program is geared toward propelling solution-oriented initiatives led by Canada’s Black communities. The Black Ideas Grant opens doors to flexible one-year funding, enhancing the capabilities of Black-led, Black-focused, and Black-serving organizations. B.l.G. represents a commitment to addressing anti-Black racism, fostering social and economic advancements, and ensuring sustained prosperity for Black communities.

Applicants will be asked to describe how the organization and/or proposed initiative are Black-led, Black-focused, and Black-serving. Be a registered charity, incorporated non-profit, other qualified donee, or an unincorporated non-profit or group working with an incorporated partner.
