About the LA2050 Grants Challenge:

The LA2050 Grants Challenge is an open call for ideas to make Los Angeles County the best place to connect, create, learn, live, and play. Since 2013, we have launched 10 cycles of the Grants Challenge, giving more than $10 million to 140 local social impact organizations with the help of hundreds of thousands of people casting votes in support. 

The 2024 LA2050 Grants Challenge unfolds in three phases:

  1. Public voting (April 2nd to May 8th, 2024) Angelenos vote to determine the issue areas that will be eligible for grant funding.
  2. Grant applications open (May 15th at 8:00 am to June 28th, 2024 at 5:00 pm) Organizations submit their ideas to address the top-voted issues, as determined by Angelenos. 
  3. Submission evaluation (July 1st to September 26th, 2024) Last, in collaboration with partners, we evaluate proposals and select grant recipients. Each winning organization will receive up to $75,000.

We accept applications from registered non-profit, for-profit, fiscally-sponsored, or governmental organizations serving Los Angeles County and its residents. Individuals are not eligible to apply. Be sure to select the correct application form for your organization type from the options listed below.
