United Way Southeast Louisiana and Baptist Community Ministries Issue $500K in Summer Learning Grants 
The Message

The United Way of Southeast Louisiana and Baptist Community Ministries will name the recipients of the inaugural Summer Impact Grants on June 2.

The two organizations allocated $500,000, collectively, to help youth-serving organizations strengthen education, health and workforce during the summer in undeserved neighborhoods in Orleans Parish. More than 30 summer program providers won the awards, which ranged from $5,000-$20,000, based on qualifications that included operating in Orleans Parish and focusing on serving low-income young people of color, ages 11 to 24.
