Community Partner Grant

The Junior League of Pittsburgh grant application period has closed for 2018. Thank you to everyone who made a submission.

2018 grants support programs that work to combat food insecurity and hunger for children in the East End of Pittsburgh.

For our purposes, the East End of Pittsburgh is defined by the following zip codes: 15201, 15206, 15207, 15208, 15213, 15217, 15218, 15219, 15221, 15224, 15232 and 15147.

The USDA defines food insecurity as the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways. The USDA defines hunger as an individual-level physiological condition that may result from food insecurity.

Grants have been awarded to applicants with programming that aligns with the Junior League of Pittsburgh’s mission and where monies will have the greatest impact.

Grants must be used for programming. Proposals to fund general administrative costs were not considered.
