Facebook Gaming has reopened applications to its special program for Black gaming creators, which was initially established last December. It should give the next generation of Black streamers and content creators a platform to express themselves and help build an audience on Facebook.

According to VentureBeat, Facebook backed the new wave of application with $10 million in funding. It is a part of the company’s $200 million initiative to support Black-owned businesses and organizations.
During the first round, Facebook received “thousands of applications” and now expects to see more people joining the Black Gaming Creator Program. The company will provide content creators mentorship, partnership, and training.
The new round of applications is open here.
