About this grant

Metro Industrial Areas Foundation, Inc., is leading and supervising a project in Chicago and other cities where Muslim leadership in community organizing is being developed. This effort has contributed to the development of the Industrial Areas Foundation affiliates, as well as to the growth and development of the participating Islamic institutions. This grant increase will support expansion of this effort, as well as a parallel effort to recruit Jewish institutions to participate in institution-based community organizing.
