Greater DC Cares’
Neighborhood Empowerment Initiative is focused on mobilizing the time, talent, and resources of residents to strengthen families and transform communities into thriving and vital places to live. For winter 2010/spring 2011, we are excited to pilot a neighboring micro-grant initiative that will enable leaders within the community to plan and execute a project that they feel is beneficial to their community. This grant is intended to utilize the neighborhood’s assets, skills, and talents to address neighborhood’s needs. The purpose of this grant is to give community residents the power of real resources to make their visions of change a reality.
