NBC 7 SAN DIEGO AND THE NBCUNIVERSAL FOUNDATION AWARDS $100,000 IN GRANTS TO THREE NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS ADDRESSING PRESSING SAN DIEGO ISSUES 

NBC 7 San Diego, in partnership with NBCUniversal Foundation, announced $100,000 in grant funding for three local non-profit organizations. In its third year, the 21st Century Solutions grant program recognizes and supports innovative, high-impact initiatives in the areas of Civic Engagement, Education, Environment, Jobs and Economic Empowerment, Media Arts and Technology.

The 21st Century Solutions Grant Challenge awarded $1.2 million nationwide in 10 of the markets served by the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. One winning organization and two runners-up were selected in each market, including San Diego. NBC 7 promoted the initiative locally and created a highly distinguished external panel to review and select the final grant recipients. 

“NBC 7 San Diego is proud to recognize and support three exceptionally innovative programs that address some of our community’s most pressing needs: veterans’ services and disaster preparedness,” said NBC 7 President and General Manager Richard Kelley. “We’re honored to partner with United Through Reading, The American Red Cross and Mental Health Systems and salute their impressive contributions to the San Diego community.” 

United Through Reading was awarded $50,000 for creating a pilot program to connect deployed service members with their families at home through their reading program. The program provides cloud-based technology for troops to keep in contact with their loved ones and to continue developing their children’s literacy skills. In partnership with Google, UTR has launched pilots that will allow service members to record books via webcam and burn to DVD or upload to the Google Cloud. Google is creating secure UTR sites families can access with their Google accounts through the UTR website. This new approach to program delivery will allow United Through Reading to remain an easy effective way for parents to remain connected with their children at home and build the earliest emergent literacy skills children need. 

American Red Cross receiving $25,000 for their Disaster Operations Center. This additional funding will aid the Red Cross in expanding this program to serve/impact the entire San Diego County. The program, strengthens our region’s capacity to respond in the most effective and efficient matter to natural disasters. This innovative system, removes barriers to communication between various government agencies for the first time, resulting in coordinated disaster responses that more effectively serve the community and can save lives. The Disaster Operations Center uses emerging technology to solve complex issues and transforms the way disasters affect communities.
 
Mental Health Systems was awarded $25,000 to establish The New Chapter Support Center at the San Diego Central Library. The New Chapter Support Center is an innovative public/private partnership between Mental Health Systems and the San Diego Public Library which assists patrons, library staff, and the community of downtown San Diego in addressing the needs of homeless individuals and families. The center provides outreach/peer support/case management services to those directly affected by homelessness and/or behavioral health issues.
