Last month, People's Liberty announced its latest group of grant recipients. Each of the eight grantees receives $10,000 to make a positive impact on their communities. Projects range from Brick Gardens, an urban gardening model using indoor vertical towers to grow produce, to The Costumed Sidewalk Parades, spontaneous theme-based parades inviting people to explore new parts of the city.

Cincinnati and the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation have reached agreement on streetcar operations funding.  The 8-page deal released Thursday spells out the terms for the foundation providing $900,000 to help with streetcar operating funds for the first two years.  

Streetcar operations are expected to cost approximately $4.2 million in years one and two.  The first year of service is scheduled to begin in September.

All of today's contributions - up to 50,000 - will be doubled, thanks to The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. / U.S. Bank Foundation. 

  Last December, People'’s Liberty announced its two 2015 Haile Fellows, who each received $100,000 to develop their winning business concepts. Now People'’s Liberty is opening the application process for its Project Grants. Ranging in size with a maximum $10,000, the grants will be awarded for innovative projects that increase civic engagement and drive community development.

Two Cincinnati men have each received $100,000 from a philanthropic organization that wants to improve the city.  People's Liberty named Brad Cooper and Brad Schnittger as the first recipients of the Haile Fellowship. 

“I can’t begin to express how rewarding it was to call both of the grantees, to let them know they’d be taking on their dream projects next year,” said Jake Hodesh, People’s Liberty’s vice president of operations. “Both indicated how their lives would never be the same.”

THANK YOU!
