Binghampton has been chosen to receive a portion of a $225,000 grant received by the Greater Memphis Partnership, a collection of local nonprofits and government agencies. With Community LIFT as lead agency, they worked together for months to secure the grant.
Awarded through the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP), this grant was created to help residents in low-income neighborhoods provide the foundation and resources needed to help them gain access to better forms of education, good employment, safety and housing.
Memphis was one of only four cities nationwide to be selected through a competitive process for the BNCP. We are eager to see Binghampton grow and thrive, supported by grants such as this one!
