Community Project Grants to Prevent and Address Bias and Hate

The NYC Mayor’s Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes (OPHC) and the NYC Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) provide Community Project Grants to encourage individuals, groups, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, and other entities located in New York City to implement creative projects that promote community respect, prevent hate violence, and seek to address hate crimes, bias-motivated incidents, and discrimination through pathways outside of law enforcement and the criminal legal system. These grants will be distributed on a rolling basis throughout the year.
