Centro selected as part of the Citi Foundation’s Community Progress Makers

We are honored to be selected as part of the newest cohort of Citi Foundation’s Community Progress Makers! The Foundation’s unrestricted grant support & technical assistance from Urban Institute will help scale our work at Centro to increase social & economic opportunity in our community.

The Citi Foundation first launched the Community Progress Makers initiative in 2015 with a vision of empowering community leaders to grow their transformative impact through unrestricted, trust-based funding. In 2021, the Citi Foundation announced a $25 million expansion of Community Progress Makers with an intentional focus to support visionary organizations that are working to connect low-income communities and communities of color to greater social and economic opportunity.

As a Community Progress Maker, Centro will receive a multi-year, unrestricted grant of $500,000 and access to technical assistance and a supportive learning community from 2022 – 2023.

This third iteration of Community Progress Makers is a part of Citi and the Citi Foundation’s Action for Racial Equity initiative, which has already invested $1 billion in strategic initiatives to help close the racial wealth gap in the United States.

We are grateful for Citi Foundation for supporting our mission to create thriving communities.
