One NYC One Nation Program to Award Micro-Grants to Diverse Groups Collaborating on Community Projects

Dear Colleague,

Happy New Year! Mayorís Office of Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Fatima Shama and Citizens Committee for NYC CEO Peter Kostmayer announced on Friday the UnityNYC Grant Awards, a grant program for groups collaborating on community projects. UnityNYC Grant Awards is a signature program of One NYC One Nation in collaboration with the Citizens Committee for New York City, the New York Community Trust, the One Nation Foundation, the New York Council for the Humanities, and the J.M. Kaplan Fund.

The UnityNYC Grant Awards will award grants up to $3,000 to faith-based or neighborhood-based immigrant and non-immigrant groups that collaborate on community projects. The grants will support the Cityís ongoing commitment to sustaining healthy communities through high impact service projects. UnityNYC Grant Awards will tap into New York Cityís diverse neighborhood groups to proactively address critical needs and promote opportunities that directly contribute to the public good.

We are accepting applications from resident-led volunteer groups in all five boroughs. Groups will be selected based on their demonstrated ability to unite residents from diverse backgrounds, mobilize at least 20 volunteers, and execute a well-planned project. Preference will be given to groups operating in low-income, underserved communities. Partner with one or many groups, come up with an idea, and apply! The deadline is January 31st, 2013.

To access the application please see the Citizens Committee for NYCís website: http://www.citizensnyc.org/programs/grants/unitygrants.html. A flyer, FAQ sheet and press release have also been attached to this e-mail. Thank you for your partnership and ongoing commitment to our cityís immigrant communities. In unity, we will continue to make NYC the greatest city in the world!

In response to the questions we received, I checked in with Citizens Committee and unfortunately groups are only permitted to apply for a cap of $3,000 (one micro-grant) per project. So, they only way they could get more funding is if they submit multiple project applications. The flyer is currently being translated into Spanish, Haitian Creole, Russian, Bengali, Arabic, Chinese, and Korean. However, applications are only accepted in English or Spanish. I will forward the flyers in these languages when they are ready.
