As you will see, this is great news for us and for our community!
Just had to pass along the good news!
I just wanted to share some good news we received this morning.
CDM was just awarded $731,511 in stimulus/recovery funds to significantly expand our AmeriCorps program.
This grant will increase the AmeriCorps annual operating budget to $1.58 million.
Under this grant we will undertake two main projects:
1. Continue funding all current AmeriCorps placements that we were set to lose under our current grant. . .
2. Fund the upscale of the Congo St project, which is a joint project of Central Dallas Community Development Corporation and bcWorkshop (This project will impact up to a 10 block area by rehabilitating all targeted properties in the area).
We would never have received these funds if CDM were not such a strong organization; so it is my fellow directors to whom I owe a debt of gratitude.
Thank you all!
Thank you, Keven! Your vision, leadership and hard work, along with that of your entire team call for celebration!Here's one more very important detail: the new grant will mean that we can fund 335 new AmeriCorps positions in our neighborhood. We're getting to scale now!
We love AmeriCorps at CDM!
