CAH Grants

We offer multiple funding programs for individuals and nonprofit organizations located in the District of Columbia. Individuals are not required to provide matching funds. Organizations are only required to provide matching funds as indicated.

Commission staff members conduct workshops at which participants learn about the Commission and the steps to submit a grant application. During these workshops, staff and applicants discuss each grantmaking opportunity. Workshop dates, times, and locations are subject to change.
