Grants and in-kind services to USA groups of organizations in multiple states to advance economic equality for Black and Latina women. Funding is intended for innovative solutions designed for and by low- and moderate-income Black and/or Latina women. Priority will be given to initiatives that focus on Black and/or Latina women in their prime working and wealth-building years (ages 16 and older), from when they pursue higher education or enter the workforce as young adults (16-24), to when they move through their careers, increase earnings, and save for retirement as adults (25+).
The AdvancingCities Challenge is an annual competition that sources innovation to drive systemic change in U.S. cities, helping support economic opportunity for more people by leveraging meaningful collaboration among private, public, and nonprofit leaders.
This year, JPMorgan Chase is evolving its AdvancingCities Challenge to source bold solutions that catalyze recovery and long-term prosperity for Black and Latina women, their families, and local economies. Black and Latina women are the backbone of many of America’s cities – as consumers, homeowners, entrepreneurs, business owners, and essential workers in critical sectors affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, longstanding racial and gender wealth gaps, coupled with impacts from COVID-19 have exacerbated disparities for Black and Latina women.
Through the Challenge, JPMorgan Chase is inviting communities to apply for up to $5 million to support innovative, sustainable solutions that drive wealth creation and economic success of Black and Latina women, which is foundational to building more equitable communities. The proposals should address multidimensional, systemic challenges, leverage cross-sector leadership and collaboration, center the voice and lived experience of Black or Latina women, and drive systems change at the local level.
JPMC will prioritize solutions designed, led, and implemented by Black and/or Latina women, centering their proximate expertise and lived experience in a powerful vision for the future.
