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 application deadline is March 1, 2018. To learn more about the annual grant program and how to apply, visit www.sage.edu/rubin.

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. The 2017-2018 Rubin Fellows were the City of Troy and the YWCA of the Greater Capital Region. The City of Troy received support to create a Youth Recreation Master Plan, to include programs and assets of the City and its recreation partners including the YMCA and Boys & Girls Club. The YWCA-GCR received support for a collaboration between the YWCA's Jamison-Rounds Ready for Work Program and Emma Willard School's Signature Program, to assist Ready for Work program graduates with developing a three-month personal project and seeing it through to fruition.
