Last month, Citizens Bank announced its investment of $40,000 in grants as part of its Growing Communities initiative in Central Falls and Pawtucket. Growing Communities is part of Citizens Helping Citizens Strengthen Communities, the bank’s program to help contribute to the economic vitality of its communities. The Growing Communities initiative is designed to foster neighborhood revitalization and economic development activities across Rhode Island.
Through the Growing Communities initiative, Citizens Bank partnered with the Rhode Island Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC) to award $40,000 in grants to nine different organizations, ranging from $1,000 to $6,000. The initiative will fund projects that contribute to the resiliency of Central Falls and Pawtucket by fostering neighborhood growth and supporting local economic activity.
We are proud to share that Farm Fresh RI was a recipient of a grant this year to support our Harvest Kitchen youth job-training program. Thank you to Citizens Bank and LISC! Read the full press release at LISC Rhode Island.
