In 2020, YouTube launched the #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund, a multi-year commitment dedicated to spotlighting and growing Black creators and music on our platform, by giving them access to resources to help them thrive on YouTube.
YouTube is now accepting applications for the #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund Class of 2023. This program equips Black creators, artists, songwriters, and producers with the resources and supports to enable them to thrive on YouTube.
