PDF’s 2015 Community Organizing Grant Recipients Published on September 16, 2015

From more than 80 applications this year, PDF funded 16 groups with grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. Many of these groups are dealing with the loss of housing, a rise in incarceration, or a need to develop youth leadership opportunities as an antidote to education inequality and unemployment. PDF’s Board of Directors was impressed with the applications, their diverse missions, the sense of community that surrounded them and the commitment that the groups displayed in both follow-up interviews and within their plans of action.

Below are the recipients of this year’s grants. (Note: An asterisk denotes a first-time grantee.)
