“The goal of the Neighborhood Grants Program is to empower residents to lead change in their neighborhoods,” said Erika Matadamas, Program Officer for the CFMC.
The Neighborhood Grants Program supports grassroots groups who are working to improve their communities for themselves and their neighbors.
Grants have included support for groups who organized parent- and volunteer-led programs focusing on youth sports and leadership, cultural arts programs, advocacy and support groups and neighborhood improvement.
Since the program’s inception in 1997, $1,025,000 has been awarded.
