What is the #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund?

In June of 2020, the #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund was created to centre and amplify Black voices and perspectives on YouTube, alongside a commitment to doing better as a platform to protect Black creators, artists, and users. This fund is aimed to shine a spotlight on our #YouTubeBlack Creators and storytellers authentically expressing their narratives across the globe.

Creators who are selected to be part of the cohort will receive:

  • One year of Strategic Partner Manager (SPM) support

  • One-time direct seed funding to create content throughout 2023

  • Workshops and masterclasses to cultivate new skills and expand their networks

  • Access to exclusive social and community programs

  • Opportunity to be featured across YouTube marketing and brand campaigns

To be eligible, you must be a Black-identifying creator, member of the YouTube Partner Program, and located in any of our eligible markets (U.S. Brazil, U.K., Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, and Canada).

Applications opened on June 14 and close at 23:59 on Wednesday 13 July!
