The Citi Foundation has announced the expansion of the Community Progress Makers Fund, through an investment of an additional $20 million in leading nonprofit organizations across six U.S. cities. Building upon the success of the first 40 Community Progress Makers, the Fund will provide unrestricted grant funding to community-based organizations working to tackle longstanding urban economic challenges for low-income residents. Two-year core operating support grants of up to $500,000 each will be available to nonprofits in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, D.C. Community Progress Makers are established, visionary organizations that can align the efforts of multiple stakeholders toward shared goals. These nonprofits employ a cross-sector approach to connect communities to greater social and economic opportunities and demonstrate positive measurable impact. The deadline to apply is December 18, 2017.
