District Attorney Rachael Rollins today invited nonprofits to attend an information session on her Community Reinvestment Grant program, which last year delivered $100,000 to local nonprofits working with youth in Boston, Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop.
“So much of the work that my staff and I do takes place outside of the courthouse. We are indebted to our amazing nonprofit partners who help keep our communities safe and healthy by providing mentoring, educational opportunities, and positive social programming as well tools and strategies to combat violence, trauma and addiction,” District Attorney Rollins said. “I’m proud to offer this funding to show my Office’s support for this important work.”
Organizations interested in applying for a Community Reinvestment Grant are invited to attend an information session on February 26, 2020, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Perkins Community Center, 155 Talbot Ave., in Dorchester. The event will allow nonprofit leaders the opportunity to ask questions about the application process and to become familiar with the grant program’s priorities.
The request for proposals (RFP) can be found here; application materials will be made available on February 26, 2020. Proposals are due no later than March 30, 2020, and applicants will be notified of a decision on April 22, 2020.
Last year, District Attorney Rollins awarded a total of $100,000 to 21 nonprofit agencies. “This grant program allows my Office to invest in our values and give back to the community through organizations that work each and every day to provide the services that Suffolk County residents of all ages, and especially our young people, need to thrive,” District Attorney Rollins said. “The funding allows these institutions to continue their vital work in the community, and it helps strengthen my Office’s bonds with our nonprofit partners and the community at large.”
