Facebook Gaming Reopens Applications For $10M Fund For Black Gamers

Facebook Gaming reopened applications for its Black Gaming Creator Program on August 23rd. The initiative, which was introduced in December of 2020, aims to support the black gaming community with $10 million in funding over the next two years.

The Black Gaming Creator Program is part of a $200 million commitment Facebook has made to black communities. Last August, the social media company pledged $25 million to black content creators through the organization’s We The Culture Program.

“We’re excited to reopen applications for the Black Gaming Creator Program’s second year and are eager to see the next wave of great gaming creators at Facebook Gaming,” said Facebook’s global director of gaming creator partnerships Luis Renato Olivalves. “With many new partners in the first year, this program is proof of the growing excitement for entertaining, diverse and creative personalities and new communities within game streaming.”

Applications for the program are open now. Registration for the project closes on October 29th, 2021.
