Grant Summary

$25,000 over 12 months to the Anchor Institutions Task Force, a membership organization for higher education institutions that are rooted in or close to distressed communities. This grant is primarily to support their urgent efforts to publicize the work of anchor institutions in the face of the pandemic, and to promote the exchange of ideas and strategies among their member institutions for effective interventions on behalf of their own students as well as their neighbors in low-income and minority communities.
