Shelley Peterson, a member of the Resident Advisory Council (RAC), described the council’s awarding of $100,400 in Community Impact Fund grants to 21 businesses and organizations in an interview on WPRI on Tuesday.

The grants, of up to $5,000 each, are to be used to support creative, community-driven projects that support the goals and objectives of Central Providence Opportunities, a collective-impact initiative to improve economic mobility for residents in the nine neighborhoods located in the 02908 and 02909 ZIP codes.
