Small and Mighty: Hebrew Free Loan Association of Pittsburgh
The Pittsburgh Foundation awarded a Small and Mighty grant of $15,000 to Hebrew Free Loan Association of Pittsburgh in 2017. Through this grant, the organization established a fund for single mothers seeking interest-free loans. Some low-income single mothers may have difficulty securing traditional loans, which can come with high interest rates if they do qualify. Through this fund, they could borrow up to $1,200.
The Small and Mighty grants program, an outcome of the Foundation’s 100 Percent Pittsburgh organizing principle, has, as of Dec. 2019, awarded $1.25 million to nonprofit organizations with budgets of less than $600,000.
