CCE launches 2021 Community Grant Application and new Neighbors Uplifting Neighbors Award

City and Community Engagement at Northeastern University is proud to launch the 2021 Community Grants application! Any Boston-area based community organization, nonprofit, or school that is currently engaging or has previously engaged with Northeastern University students, staff, or faculty in partnership with City and Community Engagement in the last three academic years is eligible to apply. We are looking to fund proposals with an emphasis on striving towards equity and justice.

As Northeastern aims to be a good neighbor to the communities in which we reside, we will focus funding for community organizations, nonprofits, or schools serving in the neighborhoods of Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Fenway, Mission Hill, and/or the South End.

Additionally, CCE is excited to announce a new initiative - the Neighbors Uplifting Neighbors Award! Building upon Northeastern University’s Office of City and Community Engagement’s Community Grant program for local nonprofit organizations in our surrounding communities, we are excited to pilot this new initiative to financially support resident-led initiatives in our local neighborhoods. We are seeking nominations from local residents to help us identify resident-led initiatives that are having a local impact. As such, the initiatives must be led by and primarily serving residents in one or more of the four neighborhoods Northeastern is a part of: Fenway, Mission Hill, Roxbury, South End.

We invite our community members to learn more and apply for a 2021 Community Grant as well as nominate a resident-led initiative for the Neighbors Uplifting Neighbors Award by Friday, April 16th. If you have questions, please contact Hilary Sullivan at or at 617.373.5838.
