Diverse Erie to host workshops for Generational Impact Grant applicants – GoErie.com

With Diverse Erie launching its first-ever grant program — the Generational Impact Grant — in July, questions about how, where and when to apply and use the grant are sure to arise.
To help navigate applicants through the grant process, Diverse Erie — formerly known as the Erie County Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commission — will host three informational workshops.

Attendees will learn more about eligibility guidelines and critical dates and have the opportunity to ask questions about the grant and Diverse Erie. Attendance is not mandatory, but potential applicants are highly encouraged to attend, according to a Diverse Erie news release.
“This is a unique opportunity for the community because this grant is designed to target specific areas of Erie County where socially and economically disadvantaged statuses have been exacerbated by the pandemic,” stated Gary Lee, chief administrative officer of Diverse Erie, in the news release. “We encourage applicants and the community to visit our website and social media pages for updates as additional workshop may follow.”
The Generational Impact Grant program, which was unanimously approved by Diverse Erie in June, provides grants ranging from $100,000 to $500,000 toward capital projects deemed to have a long-lasting impact on the Black, Indigenous or People of Color population.
Open to non- and for-profit entities in the county, the grant program seeks to invest in projects that will aid those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic — which, in the case of Erie County, are those in Black, Indigenous or people of color communities, according to Diverse Erie.
Funding for the program is provided by $3.5 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act funds awarded to Diverse Erie in 2021.
