Capacity Building

MOAPIA is committed to building the capacity of community-based organizations (CBO) that provide services to the underserved AAPI community by:

  • Connecting CBOs to various organizations that provide technical assistance and resources
  • Seeking opportunities for public or private partnerships that may benefit CBOs, and
  • Facilitating seminars and other training mechanisms to support their development and sustainability.

For more information on MOAPIA capacity building projects, please contact Dory Peters at (202) 727-3120 or email [email protected].

Grant Opportunities

MOAPIA is committed to providing funding for community-based organizations (CBO) that provide supplemental government services to the District’s Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. MOAPIA achieves this through MOAPIA Community Grants, which began in FY2007, when a number of Asian American and Pacific Islander-led CBOs and the Commission on Asian and Pacific Islander Community Development requested that the Mayor support funds to be distributed competitively to AAPI-serving organizations.
