AAPI Guide to Federal Agency Resources

Over the last two years, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, have been engaging with diverse ethnic subgroups in cities across the country on how the federal agencies may better meet the needs of the growing Asian American and Pacific  Islander populations.

One issue prevalent was a lack of awareness of what resources the federal government offered to improve the Asian Americans Pacific Islander quality of life.

In honor of the two year anniversary of the signing of the executive order by President Obama, the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Initiative released its Guide to Federal Agency Resources, which is an easy-to-use navigational tool on federal funding, programs, and resources – providing a snapshot of federal resources available to assist organizations/individuals seeking to improve their quality of life, in America.

Within this guide, individuals/organizations can find information such as grant opportunities, loan programs to help start a business, federal resources for food and housing for low-income individuals, and health-care programs for veterans and their families.

The guide also includes 10 Grantee Spotlights, featuring organizations and individuals who have successfully navigated the federal grant application process offering their advice based on their experiences, to prospective applicants.

This guide will provide individuals/ organizations with ideas, and a starting point on how to access federal resources available, to improve the quality of life of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, in the US.
