Fusion is proud to announce the Community inFusion Small Grants Program’s first call for grant applications!
$35,000 designated by The Annie E. Casey Foundation for a pilot small grants program will be awarded by Community inFusion Small Grants Program to East Baltimore Residents. Fusion Partnerships proudly serves as the program’s fiscal sponsor and coordinator. This program is unique from other small grants programs for two main reasons:
- The committee that reviews all grant proposals and gives final approval is comprised entirely of residents from the C.A.R.E., McElderry, and Middle East Communities.
- The projects proposed for consideration must be led by residents of these communities.
This grantmaking process is based on similar grassroots grantmaking programs in Cleveland, Detroit, and Atlanta and has been refined by residents in the C.A.R.E., McElderry, and Middle East Communities to better serve the specific needs of their neighborhoods. The residents in collaboration with Fusion Partnerships have also developed the program’s name —Community inFusion.
