Mayor Thomas M. Menino today celebrated the City's Partners with Non-Profits (PNP) program, awarding 48 human service non-profit organizations from around Boston a total of $650,000 in grant funding to be used for public facility upgrades and on-site physical improvements. This year's awards will leverage a projected total cost of approximately $2 million, and will benefit social service organizations, youth and recreation centers, several YMCA and Boys and Girls Club neighborhood branches, as well as health centers, among many other non-profits.

"For more than 20 years, Partners with Non-Profits has directly invested in dozens of organizations that invest so deeply in the people of Boston. Their commitment to the neighborhoods helps make our city so strong," Mayor Menino said.  "This program is a small but important tool that we have to ensure that these programs and services are made available to the community for years to come."

Since 1995, the Partners with Non-Profits program, operated by the City's Department of Neighborhood Development (DND), has awarded more than $10 million in grants to neighborhood non-profits.  The program provides funding of up to $25,000 for capital improvements, such as handicap accessibility upgrades, code repairs, or other infrastructure renovations, to neighborhood-based non-profit organizations through a competitive Request for Proposals process. Grants are made possible by the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
