The Lyft Community Grants are given to one organization per month in each of 20 participating regions and consist of $1,000 in Lyft ride credits to enhance regular or one-off programs.
On its blog, Lyft says it is “committed to empowering non-profit organizations doing incredible work around the nation to make our communities stronger, healthier, and more equitable”.
“The Lyft Community Grant will help ease transportation issues for many of our program participants, and we are grateful to Lyft for their recognition and support,” Café Momentum Chief Development Officer Margaret Windham said in a press release.
