San Francisco Nonprofit Displacement Mitigation Program

For arts, childcare, and social service sectors.

The Nonprofit Displacement Mitigation Program provides technical and financial assistance to support nonprofits facing displacement or lease renewals at substantially higher rates amidst a volatile real estate market.

In December 2015 NCCLF announced the second round of grant recipients, which included thirteen social service and seven art nonprofits. These awards, totaling more than $1.2 million, will help these nonprofits remain in the area and continue to serve residents struggling with a wide-range of socioeconomic disparities.

NCCLF is partnering with the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, San Francisco Arts Commission, Urban Solutions, and the Community Arts Stabilization Trust (CAST).
