BIPOC Arts Network and Fund, or BANF, was created to provide resources and networks that support the vibrant Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern and other communities of color of Greater Houston in fully displaying their power, values and traditions. Its goals are achieved through grant funding, advocacy, and community-building networking initiatives that revolutionize the local funding landscape, break down silos within the arts ecosystem, and welcome everyone to support and learn from BIPOC arts communities.
BANF is an independent initiative funded by the generous contributions of national and local foundations, including Houston Endowment, the Ford Foundation, The Brown Foundation, Inc., The Cullen Foundation, Kinder Foundation and The Powell Foundation.
BIPOC Arts Network and Fund Invites Applications from Houston-Area Organizations to apply for grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, due Oct. 22, 2021.
Eligibility: Applicants must be BIPOC-founded and led nonprofit organizations with arts and cultural programming, or fiscally-sponsored artist collectives who have a proven track record of work that benefits BIPOC communities.
