ECGRA UChoose Grants are an exciting new program modeled after the nationally recognized Pepsi Refresh Project. “I’m really excited about the participative nature of this thing,” says ECGRA Executive Director Perry Wood. “This is the public’s chance to get in the driver’s seat and vote for projects they like.” UChoose Grants are designed to empower Erie County nonprofits, embolden Erie County community members, and provide ECGRA with a larger, more diverse funding pool.
