New York City’s community foundation recently announced $6.7 million in grants to 37 nonprofits.

As the city faces the continued challenges brought on by the pandemic, New York Community Trust grants are targeting a range of relief areas, from helping job seekers begin fulfilling careers to training more healthcare workers.

Grantees are also working on other fronts to improve the lives of New Yorkers, including protecting the environment, promoting civic engagement, expanding access to healthcare, and improving housing.

“As the city continues to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Shawn Morehead, The Trust’s vice president for grants. “The Trust continues to meet the needs of those hardest hit, including those out of work, trying to find mental health services, or coping with domestic violence.”

The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative will receive $95,000 to complete a study that will inform the development of the 26-mile bikeway. It will provide better information about gaps and barriers to access for lower income neighborhoods to encourage more equitable use of the Greenway as the project advances.
