Fusion is proud to announce the Community inFusion Small Grants Program’s second call for grant applications!
Deadline: Monday, Oct 17, 2016 5pm
In 2001 nearly 700 families were displaced from their homes in East Baltimore to make way for the building of an 88-acre technology park. In an effort to help restore residential power in these neighborhoods bordering Johns Hopkins Hospital, The Annie E. Casey Foundation has designated funds for a pilot small grants program. Through collaborative action, Fusion Partnerships, Inc. works to be a catalyst for social justice and peace by serving as the program’s fiscal sponsor and coordinator. This program is unique from other grants programs for two main reasons:
- The projects proposed for consideration must be led by residents of these communities.
- The committee that reviews and approves all grant proposals is comprised entirely of residents from the C.A.R.E., McElderry, and Middle East Communities.
Our grantmaking process is based on similar grassroots grantmaking programs in Cleveland, Detroit, and Atlanta and has been tailored by residents in the C.A.R.E., McElderry, and Middle East Communities to better serve the specific needs of their neighborhoods. Residents in collaboration with Fusion Partnerships have also developed the program’s name —Community inFusion
