Dear Colleagues and Partners,


I trust this email finds you well. I'm excited to present another grant opportunity that may capture your interest. This funding is specifically targeted at grassroots/community-based agencies, faith-based organizations, and local businesses addressing stress and trauma in designated neighborhoods in North, West, and Southwest Philadelphia.


Programs are expected to creatively tackle these challenges by establishing safe spaces for youth, engaging families, imparting life skills, providing trauma training, and fostering collaboration. There are two funding tiers available: Tier 1 offers up to $15,000 for individual organizations, while Tier 2 provides up to $25,000 for collaborative partnerships involving at least two organizations.


Please find the attached email and links for comprehensive details and information about upcoming interactive workshops that can benefit potential grant seekers.
