PPL receives Next Generation grant from The Kresge Foundation
PPL recently received a significant and impactful two-year grant from The Kresge Foundation as a part of their Next Generation Initiative. This initiative focuses on helping human services organizations across America develop innovative approaches to the work of growing social and economic mobility for low income peoples. The grant will be used to develop our work in racial equity, neighborhood partnerships, program evaluation, and communications infrastructure.
PPL is one of only 13 grant awardees from across the country, which spans a diverse and powerful group of leaders and organizations. Over the course of the next two years, PPL will work with these leaders to share insights and best practices on how we are transforming our approaches to human services. Kresge defines these Next Generation human services organizations as “organizations or local networks that are setting the pace of evolution in the social services sector by delivering supports that are responsive to client needs, adopting a data-driven approach and embracing a stance of risk taking”.
A big thank you to The Kresge Foundation for all that they will make possible. This grant aligns with the many ways in which PPL is transforming communities, and will make a crucial difference not only for the current individuals and families with low incomes that we serve in Minnesota, but for generations to come
The Kresge Foundation is a $3.5 billion private, national foundation that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing.
