Public Broadcasting has a fundamental commitment to develop and fund quality, culturally-diverse programming for the American viewing public. CPB currently fulfills this commitment by funding the Minority Consortia which in turn select and fund programs about their communities, including African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.
The Consortia function as developers, producers, and distributors of radio and television programming that appeals to diverse audiences and harnesses the creative talents of minority communities. These organizations also award grants to producers for program production, training, exhibition, and outreach activities.
