Supporting neighborhoods continues as our key strategic initiative, with a significant annual investment. Our goal is to improve access to affordable housing, and equitably expand economic opportunity for marginalized residents of Northeast Florida.
Together with the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, a $120,000 commitment to the Contractors Assistance Program (CAP) of The Black Business Initiative Fund Florida provides loan capital and business training to help Black contractors thrive.
Over $800,000 in grants to Revitalize Arlington, Northwest Jax CDC, Historic Eastside CDC, and NewTown Success Zone support placemaking, training, community engagement and organizational capacity.
Small Organization grants help nonprofits to build capacity while enriching programs. Our $2,000 grant to Mission of the Dirt Road provided vital funding as well as an opportunity to secure an additional $10,000 from another funder. Through Supporting Neighborhoods, the nonprofit also received a $25,000 Program Support grant to take its efforts even further.
