Strong Communities Fund
The Strong Communities Fund has been awarding grants on a rolling basis since April 23, 2020 to support Brooklyn community-based organizations, develop civic infrastructure to address community priorities with flexible funds, and amplify community-led voice and impact.
By providing direct support to CBOs and community projects serving the neediest Brooklynites, the Strong Communities Fund is working to create a Brooklyn that is more just and fair in the allocation of resources to residents.
As of July 2021, round one of the Strong Communities Fund awarded $3 Million to 44 projects across Brooklyn.
Round two of the Strong Communities Fund grants provides nearly $1 Million in funding to 14 organizations in order to improve outreach around and access to COVID-19 testing and vaccines.
