Facebook Gaming Re-Opens Black Gaming Creator Program Applications

Facebook Gaming announced today that they have re-opened up applications for their Black Gaming Creator Program. The application process does come with a few snags, as they are only taking applications from the U.S. for now, and that applications will only be open until October 29th. Last year the platform launched the initiative and pledged to support the Black gaming community through $10M worth of funding ($5M/year over two years). The porogram is designed to "equip the next generation of Black gaming Creators with partnership status, mentorship, training on the platform and more exclusive benefits." You can read up more on what the program has to offer downb below.
