Applications are open for #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund 2022. Last year, YouTube launched the #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund, a multi-year commitment dedicated to spotlighting and growing Black creators and music on the platform, by giving them access to resources to help them thrive on YouTube.

YouTube hope to inform the selected Class of 2022 by no later than October, and will send out notifications to all applicants using the email address provided in the application. If you did not make it for funding, don’t fret, there are other opportunities to connect with YouTube, your peers, receive training, and more. Additionally, this is a multi-year program, so there will be more opportunities to receive grants in years to come.


The #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund 2022 has the following benefits

  • Dedicated support from a YouTube Partner Manager.
  • Seed funding invested into the development of your content.
  • Workshops and masterclasses throughout the year focused on cultivating new content ideas, video production skills, wellbeing, and more.
  • Access to exclusive social and community programs.


  • If you identify as Black, are a member of the YouTube Partner Program (creators only), and are located in any of our eligible markets, you should apply.
  • In the first year, the program welcomed 133 grantees hailing from the United States, Kenya, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, and Nigeria. This incredible group includes musicians, beauty entrepreneurs, comedians, activists, poets, personal trainers, teachers, parents, photographers, and more.


Grants are currently being offered to Black creators, artists, and songwriters/producers in the following countries: Australia (Artists & Songwriters/Producers only), Brazil, Canada, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States. While the grant is not being offered in other markets at this time, YouTube encourages creators to visit youtube.com/creators and artists and songwriters/producers to visit artists.youtube.com to learn about all the resources currently available to you.
