“Budget cutbacks, the sharp increase in poverty, and the on-going struggle of small community service groups for funding have made it more vital that we help fill the funding gap to boost them in their efforts to build community sustainability in under-served communities,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Impact Micro Awards aim to further community self-reliance and independence. This is the pathway to citizen empowerment.”
The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable encourages will make its next Impact Awards in November. Information and nominations for the Impact Awards
