Grants ranging from $2,000 to $40,000 Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, government agencies, faith-based and neighborhood organizations, and civic and community groups to improve infrastructure to benefit vulnerable communities. Funding is intended for innovative capital projects of small-to-medium size.
In 2019, funding priority will be placed on communities with a majority of households with low to moderate income levels. These communities have been identified by The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) using the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year 2011-2015 low- and moderate-income summary data and HUD’s Income Limits for Metropolitan and Non-Metropolitan Areas data. For the Revitalizing Westmoreland Program Guidelines, these areas will be referred to using the term “vulnerable communities”.
Revitalizing Westmoreland will provide unique opportunities for community benefit organizations and residents to create change and to improve the quality of life in Westmoreland County. Goals of the program include:
- Create partnerships between municipalities, community benefit organizations, and residents
- Leverage funds through matching dollars
- Expand infrastructure, resources, capital upgrades, and assets that are a catalyst for additional community improvements
- Connect projects to formal and informal community benefit plans as well as the county comprehensive plan, 'Reimagining Our Westmoreland'.
Revitalizing Westmoreland is a program designed to encourage new, creative ways to revitalize communities in Westmoreland County. The program was created to engage, educate, strengthen, and improve the quality of life for residents of the county through funding that promotes Westmoreland County as a clean, safe, and productive place to live. Additionally, it was developed to stimulate partnerships between neighborhood residents, business associations, civic groups, nonprofits, and local government.
