The Republic Services Charitable Foundation recently announced the 12 organizations receiving 2023 National Neighborhood Promise grants. Launched in 2018, the Foundation’s National Neighborhood Promise Program aims to revitalize communities and the quality of life of residents through volunteer projects, monetary donations and in-kind services. This year, a total of $2.5 million will be awarded to 12 nonprofit organizations making a lasting difference in local neighborhoods.

Each grant is tailored to meet a specific community need, from much-needed facility repairs and improvements – including the construction of a computer lab and fitness center – to equipment purchases and neighborhood cleanup programs.
