Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Expands Cash Award Programs

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable’s expanded Teacher Impact Award, Impact Micro Award, and Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project continues to provide much needed support to organizations in Los Angeles as well as to organizations in the nation’s poorest cities. The Teacher Impact Award program is a companion program that helps teachers at inner city schools in their purchase of classroom materials.  We have awarded nearly fifty  Awards to community organizations that fulfill our mission of working to build self-reliance and self-sustainability in the areas of violence prevention, at risk youth training, leadership mentoring and tutoring, financial education, health and nutrition awareness, arts and music training, college financial support, and civic engagement.

“Budget cutbacks and the on-going struggle of small community service groups and teachers for funding have made it more imperative 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 Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project aims to further community self-reliance and independence. This is the pathway to citizen empowerment.”


 The awards are made monthly and we encourage you or your organization to apply.
