Asian American Federation’s 2011 Community Fund Grant Awards Presentation

New York City, NY:  Since 1993, the Asian American Federation has supported critical programs for Asian American individuals and families through its annual Community Fund, awarded to local community organizations in a competitive application process.  The goal of the Community Fund is to enable groups to create new and innovative programs, sustain critical services, and respond to the needs of our City’s growing Asian American population.  Since its inception, the Fund has raised and awarded over $3 million dollars to more than 100 worthy community programs.

For 2011, a new strategy was implemented to grant fewer agencies larger funding amounts for greater impact.  This year’s Community Fund recipients are:  Chhaya CDC, Coalition for Asian American Children and Families, MinKwon Center for Community Action, Korean American Family Service Center, New York Asian Women’s Center, South Asian Council for Social Services, and South Asian Youth Action.  These seven organizations will receive a total of $170,000 to ensure the continuation of their outstanding work in the Asian American community.
