MetLife Foundation launched a two-year, $10.5 million initiative to address the persistent and growing income and wealth divide in the U.S. Grants will be awarded through two grant programs to organizations working in specific locations where MetLife has a presence:
1. Community Impact Grant Program
MetLife Foundation will support local, grassroots non-profit organizations that provide vital services to low-income individuals and families in their communities. MetLife Foundation has pledged $500,000 for this program and organizations can receive between $5,000 - $15,000 of programmatic support.
MetLife Foundation is interested in identifying potential partners—creating innovative community-focused solutions to help low-income and historically marginalized communities establish and build a career, achieve financial security and resilience, and live in a healthy and vibrant community that enables them to live to their full potential.
