Neighborhood Allies centers its work and investments to foster a more just, fair, and inclusive society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. Our mission is to engage Pittsburgh area residents and organizations with innovative tools that expand opportunity for transformative community change.
RISE HIGH Grant Partnership (RHGP) Program
The goal of the RISE HIGH Grant Partnership (RHGP) Program is to provide applicants with an opportunity to partner with Neighborhood Allies over a set period of time to achieve measurable equity and inclusion results in the Pittsburgh area. We emphasize the importance of racial equity –the condition achieved when one’s identity no longer statistically predicts how one fares. Racial equity is a part of racial justice, and thus we work to address the root causes of inequities and not just their manifestations.
- Provide grantee-partners with financial resources and technical assistance to enhance their organizational capacity. Organizational capacity includes a broad range of domains such as: Leadership, Management and Operations, Community Engagement, Program and Service Delivery, and Evaluation.
- Support strategies, partnerships, and seed ideas aiming to dismantle inequities so all residents can enjoy a better quality of life.
- Achieve alignment with one or more of the goals and objectives within our 3 Year Roadmap.
- Support Black and Brown-led organizations based in our focused geographies of: the Hilltop (Allentown, Beltzhoover, and Knoxville), the Hill District, Larimer, Homewood, Millvale and Wilkinsburg.
