Communities of color, immigrant & refugee communities, gender minorities, LGBTQ+, disabled, low-income, and other historically marginalized groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

3. The LCC will prioritize applications which provide cultural opportunities for youth.

4. Programs that have received LCC funding for multiple years or are submitting multiple applications, may have a lower funding priority so that we may equitably distribute funds to applicants who have not received funds in the past.
