As a component of our commitment to equity, we created the RISE HIGH Grant Partnership Program (Racial Inclusive Solutions for Equity, Healing, Impact, Growth and Health).


The RISE HIGH Grant Partnership (RHGP) Program provides applicants with an opportunity to partner with Neighborhood Allies over a set period of time to achieve measurable equity and inclusion results in the Pittsburgh area. We emphasize the importance of racial equity –the condition achieved when one’s identity no longer statistically predicts how one fares. Racial equity is a part of racial justice, and thus we work to address the root causes of inequities and not just their manifestations.

What We Provide

The RHGP Program consists of two grants, the RISE HIGH Growth Grant, and the 212 Convergence Grant: (There is one application for both grants)
