Hughes Investments and Ten at the Top are providing seed funding for Upstate communities to grow their local vibrancy through the Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate Grants program. This is the sixth consecutive year of the program.

Applications are now available for the grant program, which identifies and provides initial funding support for community-based programs that promote community and economic vibrancy in local areas across the Upstate. The initiative awards two grants annually, up to $5,000 to each recipient, that can include neighborhood associations, civic or community-based organizations, nonprofit organizations or local governments that are committed to developing and implementing programs designed to support communities in the Upstate.

The 2018 initial interest form is due by Aug. 1 and the deadline for submitting the grant application is Sept. 15. A Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate Grant Workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Ten at the Top office on Verdae Boulevard. The workshop will provide information about the grant program and application process.
