Racial Justice Matching Fund invests in 17 resident-led projects

Our Racial Justice Matching Fund with ioby invested $20,000 in 17 resident-led projects working to make our city a more just and equitable community. Fund dollars were used to match the money raised by ioby leaders for their projects.

A few projects that received matching funds are:

Cleveland Youth Ambassadors for Peace and Change:
Helping international students in the City of Cleveland break barriers in culture by teaching them leadership and exposing them to diplomacy and advocacy.

Crooked River Exploration Camp Expansion:
Expanding the Crooked River Exploration summer camp from 1 week to 2 weeks by providing additional scholarships, lunches, snacks, and more to our campers.

Hough Community Solar Garden:
Building a resident-owned community solar garden in Hough on the east side of Cleveland to generate our own green electricity, save on our bills, and change our economic footprint.
