Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Rochester, New York neighborhood and community associations, block clubs, and resident-led neighborhood groups to enhance the quality of life for residents of the City's West Side. Funding is intended to assist organizations that are neighborhood-based and resident-controlled as they focus on a wide range of neighborhood issues and support the well-being of local families.

Funds are available for Progress in Action, a new grassroots initiative developed by Five Star Bank to support the well-being of families in Rochester one block at a time.

  • Progress in Action is meant to benefit residents in economically vulnerable neighborhoods.
  • Eligibility will be dependent upon projects benefiting economically vulnerable neighborhoods and the improvement in the quality of life in a meaningful and sustainable fashion for residents in the neighborhood.
