Launch Sustainability Grant Deadline
The Vibrancy Funds support people building culture, sustainability, and opportunity within their community.
New Sun Rising is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to launch organizations and collaborations who build Vibrant Communities. Through the generous support of the Henry L. Hillman Foundation, the following program seeks proposals which promote innovation, engagement, and equity in the Pittsburgh region.
New Sun Rising believes that developing the community software (people + connections) and hardware (physical infrastructure) is critical to enhance natural systems and quality of life in our region. By improving the coordination of available resources, we help early stage projects improve sustainability in their community.
Projects which enhance community sustainability are encouraged to apply for a $5,000 to $8,000 Launch Sustainability Grant. While not necessary to apply, preference may be given to NSR Vibrant Communities (Allentown, Beltzhoover, Etna, Knoxville, McKees Rocks, Millvale, Northside neighborhoods, Sharpsburg, Stowe Township, Wilkinsburg), NSR fiscally sponsored projects, and Ignite Sustainability workshop participants.
In addition to the grant, Launch Sustainability Grantees will receive six months of support including:
- Monthly coaching with subject matter experts
- Access to project development resources
- Support to strengthen their business plan or grant proposal
Questions will be answered by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or attending one of the following information sessions at the Millvale Moose, 112 Sherman St, Milllvale, PA 15209:
