TRENTON HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT COLLABORATIVE GRANTS
Smaller, grassroots organizations, as well as community activists and non-incorporated groups, were a driving force in developing the Revitalization Plan for the Trenton Historic Development Collaborative (THDC) neighborhood (see map). Many of these groups do important work, but do not, at present, qualify for funding through traditional sources. To support their work in the THDC planning area, and to build grantees’ capacity in the process, the Collaborative set up the THDC Small Grants Program in partnership with I Am Trenton Community Foundation and Isles, Inc. in the fall of 2014.
To date, the program has given out over $50,000 in grant funding to over 20 grassroots groups working in the THDC neighborhood.
