Our High Impact Community Outreach (HICO) program completed its inaugural grant cycle.  We received 15 applications from agencies across the East End.  The pandemic has stressed our social agencies and their funding requests totaled $330,000.  The proposed projects were highly qualified and innovative which made our decisions challenging (we wished our budget was unlimited.) The awards ranged from $5,000 to $7,000 and totaled $41,175.  The multi-dimensional community-based projects address local needs across food insecurity, safe shelter, mental health, internet connectivity and prenatal/infant care.  Our HICO grants will greatly impact our neighbors.  However, our work just starts with providing funds.  The larger impact of HICO will be in the partnerships we form with the organizations and their constituencies.  We plan to have the agencies introduce themselves to us over the year and, hopefully, you will find a connection that is rewarding.  The award recipients are listed below and a description of their projects can be found in the Social Justice area’s HICO tab under 2020 Awards.  Congratulations to everyone for making this important program a reality.
