Community Investments for Social Justice

The Mayor and City Council established a Community Investments Review Committee (2 citizens from each ward and 2 at-large) to determine how to allocate $1 million for social justice and/or anti-poverty initiatives.  

The committee recommended funding categories to include: 

  • $200,000 in Grants for Social Justice/Anti-poverty Initiatives 
  • $150,000 for Long-term Anti-poverty/Social Justice Strategies
  • $300,000 for Broadband Internet Access Expansion and Training (to be handled by the City's I.S. Department)
  • $190,000 for Heritage Preservation and Education
  • $110,000 for Mentorship and Neighborhood Capacity Building.  

Non-profit organizations were able to submit funding requests based on these categories using the form below.
