Supporting the Leadership Efforts of NLDP Graduates

NLDP's Graduate Support Grant Program exists to assist and support NLDP graduates by providing financial support for their leadership efforts as they promote and execute their neighborhood projects while also providing an opportunity for NLDP graduates to learn the skills of grant seeking and grant administration, including grant writing, grant implementation, and grant reporting.

How It Works

NLDP graduates may apply for one of the following grant levels: $2,500, $5,000, $10,000, $15,000, $20,000 and $25,000. Grant funds are intended to support the projects and work of the graduates in Cleveland's neighborhoods through direct services support, property improvement support and profile raising/marketing support.

More information will be provided to NLDP graduates at the beginning of each year.
