Grants available for African Americans or other underserved populations in Arkansas



Little Rock, Arkansas – Programs that benefit African Americans or other underserved populations in Arkansas are awarded grants by The Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation, in partnership with Arkansas Community Foundation. The deadline for applications closes on April 1, 2022.

Eligible to apply are nonprofits with programs focusing on education, health and wellness, youth development, strengthening families, and economic development. Grants that mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on these areas will also be considered.

“We are especially grateful to our donors whose consistent support allows us to fund our grant program each year. It is critically important that we continue to support organizations facing new challenges created by the pandemic. There are many nonprofits working tirelessly in communities throughout Arkansas to improve the quality of life for its citizens,” said Charles Stewart, ABHOF Chair. “This grant program allows us to make our state a better place to live for these communities.”

ABHOF has granted more than $667,000 to nonprofits across the state, with total community investment exceeding one million dollars, since 2004.
