Rensselaer County Nonprofits Invited to Apply for Grant Funding



Non-profit organizations and government agencies in Rensselaer County are invited to submit applications to The Louis and Hortense Rubin Community Fellows Program for its 2018-19 funding cycle.

The Louis and Hortense Rubin Community Fellows Program is a cooperative venture of The Sage Colleges, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hudson Valley Community College, Emma Willard School and participating agencies of Rensselaer County, and is administered by Sage. The program connects non-profit and government groups with college and university faculty members, whose expertise can assist in developing and carrying out community enrichment projects.

The Louis and Hortense Rubin Community Fellows Program has granted more than $500,000 to community nonprofits and agencies since it was established in 1990.
