Juneteenth, officially named Juneteenth National Day of Observance, is a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.

Juneteenth was first celebrated on June 19, 1866 in Galveston, Texas, nearly nine decades after the founding of our Nation and more than two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. The Juneteenth Day of Service is an opportunity to empower individuals to promote equity and justice through community-based projects as well as recognize and celebrate African-American culture and achievements.

These mini-grants offer eligible entities grant funding to effectively recruit and engage volunteers in meaningful service activities OR to deliver a service-learning activity that relates to Juneteenth.
