SF Bay Area Queer Nightlife Fund Emergency Grant Application

The SF QNF is not accepting new applications at this time.

Applicant Eligibility:

QNF is currently providing emergency grants for food (normal basic maintenance) and medical expenses (prescriptions & essential care) only, up to $500.

Those eligible to receive funds from this grant are those for whom nightlife employment constitutes a significant portion of their regular monthly income, and where nightlife is defined as working as:

  • A service industry worker, such as a bartender or server at a queer nightlife establishment.
  • An entertainer, such as a DJ, dancer, or drag performer who performs at queer nightlife events.
  • An artist, such as a production designer, lighting designer, or event photographer for a queer nightlife venue or event.
  • A vendor or contractor primarily serving the queer nightlife industry.
  • A producer or organizer of queer nightlife events.

To ensure the fund supports the most at-risk members of our community, an applicant’s annual or monthly income should be considered low- or moderate-income (LMI) for the SF Bay Area.


This application, as well as the reviewing process, are confidential; all QNF participants and stakeholders are requested to maintain confidentiality.

This application will be reviewed by the Grant Committee of the QNF Steering Committee.
