Northwestern University has announced 21 Racial Equity Community Partnership grants totaling $600K for projects in Evanston & Chicago .

These grants will support projects that work to dismantle structural racism with mutually beneficial partnerships between a community-based organization and Northwestern faculty, students and staff. Organizations that will be part of the incubator program will receive coaching and support from Northwestern’s Center for Diversity and Democracy (CSDD) to develop project ideas that address racial inequity and prepare the organization to build mutually beneficial partnerships which would attract further philanthropic investments.

The Racial Equity and Community Partnership Grant program was developed by an advisory committee of Northwestern faculty and staff and local community leaders, including ARCC Steering Committee member Melvin Thompson (Endeleo Institute), and ARCC Co-director Jen Brown.
