About this grant

The Center for Community Change is working to build the field of community organizing by: 1) strengthening low-income, grassroots organizations in selected regions of the country; 2) building community organizing infrastructure in specific states; and 3) establishing a training institute for new organizers. The goal of this work is to increase resources and build permanent capacity to increase the ability of low-income residents to shape the programs and policies that affect their lives. This grant increase will support additional technical assistance and training provision to local community organizing groups.
