The Northeast Nonprofit Incubator was created to build up and fortify nonprofits that focus on Oklahoma City’s Black community and Eastside residents. This program seeks to increase the capacity of black-led organizations working in Northeast Oklahoma City, which will in turn benefit the communities they serve. The program is part of a larger effort to create sustainable and inclusive economic development in Oklahoma City’s Northeast section. The initial cohort application period is Feb. 15th to Feb. 28th and it will begin on March 9th.
