The Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies promotes the social and economic well-being of greater New York’s most vulnerable by advocating for just public policies and strengthening human service organizations.
FPWA presented $60,000 in program grant awards to three of its member agencies: Phipps Neighborhoods, Search and Care and Trail Blazers Camps on Wednesday, April 16th. The three $20,000 grants will go towards programs that focus on career development and coaching in health professions for young adults, volunteer coordinator services for seniors in East Harlem, and culinary training and education for inner-city youth.
On an annual basis, FPWA makes available three grants to support new service projects or significantly enhance existing social service programs that are linked to FPWA's advocacy efforts. The grants will be used from April 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015.
