Revitalizing Westmoreland is a grants program designed to encourage new, creative ways to revitalize communities in Westmoreland County.  Revitalizing Westmoreland provides matching grants to community nonprofits, development corporations, neighborhood associations, church groups, civic organizations, and local governments for small-to-medium sized innovative, capital projects.

The program was created to improve the quality of life for residents of the county through funding that promotes Westmoreland County as a clean, safe, and productive place to live.  Additionally, it was developed to stimulate partnerships between neighborhood residents, business associations, civic groups, nonprofits, and local government.

  • VISION:  Westmoreland County will be a unified community offering CLEAN, SAFE and PRODUCTIVE communities, where organizations and citizens are enthused and energized to live, work and share in its abundant resources.
  • MISSION:  The mission of the community foundation’s revitalization initiative is to provide unique opportunities for community benefit organizations and residents, to create transformational change by collectively creating and improving community assets and infrastructure to fulfill the vision of a clean, safe and productive Westmoreland County.

Grant awards typically range in size from $2,000 to $40,000.  This year's guidelines will be published on March 1, 2019.
