CINCINNATI (May 15, 2019) – Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) has awarded $752,600 in Safety Net grants to 20 nonprofit organizations throughout our tri-state community. These funds will help the region’s most vulnerable residents have better access to food, shelter and behavioral health services. In response to the shift in funding available to the community in this critical sector, grants were increased from $35,000 to $50,000 this year.

“Without community partnerships, this type of support to our region’s most vulnerable wouldn’t be possible,” said Harold Brown, GCF’s Vice President, Community Strategies. “We are excited to partner with organizations in these efforts to make Greater Cincinnati a more equitable region.”
