The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has announced third-quarter grants totaling $16 million.
The grants span the foundation's program areas, both in the United States and internationally. Grant recipients include Graham Windham, which was awarded more than $1.1 million in support of its Graham Support Lead and Achieve Model, an innovative college and career coaching program for foster youth in New York City; the Firelight Foundation, which will receive more than $3 million to strengthen the capacity of community-based organizations and communities affected by HIV and AIDS in Malawi, Zambia, and Tanzania; PATH, which was awarded $1.5 million to prepare for the commercial launch of a new chlorine generator technology; and Boston Children's Hospital, which received $1.1 million in support of an evaluation of a primary care-based model that integrates screening, brief interventions, and referral to treatment services for adolescents and young adults with substance abuse issues.
"I'm inspired by these incredible organizations that work each day to tackle global and domestic issues, embracing our common humanity while improving our world for future generations," said Hilton Foundation president and CEO Peter Laugharn. "We are grateful for the opportunity to support these partners and the communities they serve."
