New Haven Leadership Grant Program: 2012 Application Now Available!

2012 Applications Now Available for
New Haven Neighborhood Leadership Grants

Deadline to apply is February 13, 2012

 

The Neighborhood Leadership Grant Program, formerly known as The Neighborhood Small Grant Program, works with resident leaders in New Haven neighborhoods to make our community a better place. We believe that resident leaders have the power to influence what happens in a neighborhood and the ability to build community where they live. We believe that all communities have assets, which include neighborhood residents, local institutions, and private and public resources. Furthermore, we believe that by supporting neighborhood leaders we facilitate their ability to inspire other residents to act in their own self-interest and the well being of their community.

 

The New Haven Neighborhood Leadership Grant Program provides grants up to $3,000 and Leadership Workshops to help you to contribute to positive change in your neighborhood. Participation in Leadership Workshops is required.

 

This year, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven will prioritize activities that enhance student achievement; support a college going culture; help reduce violence; and promote infant health. 

 

A complete set of Application and Guidelines is available online at our website www.cfgnh.org/NeighborhoodLeadership

It must be submitted by 12:00 pm on February 13, 2012.

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.
