Federal Dollars at Work: Community Enhancement Grants

Families Together Housing

Raleigh awards funds to local nonprofits providing public services to low-income Raleigh residents. The funding comes from federal dollars. Each year we select local nonprofits that serve at-risk populations.

Four non-profits received funding in FY19-20:

  1. Campbell University helps people get their driver's license reinstated.
  2. Families Together helps homeless families move from temporary housing to permanent housing.
  3. The Green Chair Project helps to furnish new beds for children
  4. Step Up Ministry guides people through the employment process, providing help every step of the way.

A non-profit can receive a maximum of two continuous years of funding from this grant program.

It is now time for local nonprofits to apply for a Community Enhancement Grant. Requests for proposals is now being accepted for the 2020-2021 year. If you have any questions, contact John Niffenegger at 919-996-6961 or email at john.niffenegger@raleighnc.gov.
