Partnering to Serve Our City’s Immigrant Communities and Looking for Funding?

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

By Alice Kenny

Are you a faith or neighborhood-based immigrant and non-immigrant group collaborating on projects to sustain healthy communities through high-impact service projects AND looking for funding support?

If you are, you may be eligible for up to a $3,000 UnityNYC grant.

  • UnityNYC Grant Awards will tap into New York City’s diverse neighborhood groups to proactively address critical needs and promote opportunities that directly contribute to the public good.
  • Applications are being accepted from resident-led volunteer groups in all five boroughs.
  • Groups will be selected based on their demonstrated ability to unite residents from diverse backgrounds, mobilize at least 20 volunteers, and execute a well-planned project.
  • Preference will be given to groups operating in low-income, underserved communities.

Partner with one or many groups, come up with an idea, and apply.

But you need to move fast.  The application deadline is January 31st, 2013.

To access the application, check out the Citizens Committee for NYC’s website: www.citizensnyc.org/programs/grants/unitygrants.html.

Thank you for your partnership and ongoing commitment to our city’s immigrant communities.

In unity, we will continue to make NYC the greatest city in the world!
