Community Progress Makers Fund


The Community Progress Makers Fund is a $20 million, two-year initiative by the Citi Foundation to support high-impact community organizations that are driving economic opportunities in their communities. These 40 change agents are addressing a range of urban challenges in the U.S., from economic development and affordable housing to environmental sustainability and urban infrastructure. In addition to core operating grant support, Community Progress Makers have access to technical assistance from leading experts and are part of a learning cohort to share best practices.

The most successful community innovators know that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to complex social and economic issues. Yet there is a growing recognition that working comprehensively and collectively across silos — with residents, nonprofit partners, businesses and municipal agencies — can dramatically increase the pace of progress for all. Community Progress Makers are leading this charge through transformative local solutions.
