At its most recent meeting, the CHE Board of Trustees approved grants totaling nearly $2 million. All grants listed begin on July 1, 2021. This round of grants from the Resiliency Fund will focus efforts on vulnerable populations as determined by CHE's Place Matters Report. Projects will address under- and un-employment caused by the pandemic, substance abuse treatment and support, youth programming in high poverty areas, child victims of abuse, and more.
In July 2020, CHE funded the creation of the Lincoln Youth Mentoring Coalition. This group, representing 26 organizations in Lincoln, has been hard at work to better understand the “state of mentoring” in Lincoln, and to provide specific recommendations for improving mentoring services going forward. This is a first of its kind project for Lincoln/Lancaster County. Read the report to learn more!
Applications for the Fall 2021 grant cycle are due by noon on Friday, July 16, 2021. Contact CHE with questions.
