The Taylor Center is accepting submission for its Community Changemaker Fund, a fund created from our desire to support community changemakers who have responded to ongoing challenges in their neighborhoods and communities. Through this award, the Taylor Center hopes to center and support black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) New Orleans residents who are deeply rooted in and committed to their community. This award is for all the BIPOC community supporters, doers, organizers, people making a difference in their communities. Individuals and organizations can apply for research or project-based funding that supports the wellbeing of their community.
