The Southland Economic Transformation Grant Fund, generously supported by the MacArthur Foundation and managed by the South Suburban Economic Growth Initiative (“SSEGI”), is now accepting Letters of Interest from community members, development organizations and other stakeholders. The Transformation Grant Fund will provide modest grants averaging $40,000 for predevelopment, project planning and, in some cases, early implementation efforts for projects that contribute to transformative economic change in the Southland.
The deadline to submit LOIs no more than three (3) pages in length will close on March 9, 2020, and the proposed project must further SSEGI’s mission and strategies to accomplish inclusive economic growth. To learn more about the Southland Economic Transformation Grant Fund, please review the grant documents and register for the informational webinar on the SSEGI website.
