NEW YORK (September 29, 2022) –The Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF) welcomed representatives from 19 New York State-based AAPI organizations last week for the official launch of the NYS AAPI Community Fund.  Created through the FY 2021-2022 NY State AAPI Equity Budget with the vital support of New York State legislators, the inaugural NYS AAPI Community Fund supports vital work to challenge anti-Asian hate.  

Through this new fund, CACF is distributing $450,000 across the 19 community-based organizations supporting projects that include performing arts celebrating AAPI communities and histories; cross-cultural programs building community solidarity; and services supporting immigrants across NY State.  Over 50 community-based organizations submitted proposals for the new fund, illustrating the need for further statewide support for New York’s growing AAPI population.
