Neighborhood Connections has awarded nearly 2,500 grants since 2003, totaling more than $7.9 million. How do they decide who receives the grants? Our next guests can tell us.  We had two members of the Grant-making Committee, Rebecca Mason and Hank Smith in studio. Below are the questions Tiffany asked during the interview: 

1. Rebecca, who serves on the grant-making committee?

Rebecca: Committee is made up of about 20-25 residents of Cleveland and East Cleveland.

2. Hank, tell us more about the process. What are you looking for in a grant applicant?

3. To both: Can you tell us some of your favorite grantees?

4. To both: You spend a lot of time serving on the grant-making committee and it’s all volunteer. Tell us, why do you do this? Why is this work important to you?
