The Hampton Roads Project (HRP) is a seven cities (Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Hampton and Newport News ) urban grassroots movement.
We are building a high-performing network made of community nonprofits and grantmakers. By building strong relationships between service providers and funding groups, we will penetrate deep into our urban communities empowering those who are seeking to solve problems within urban communities.
HRP has three specific goals:
1. To build capacity among our community of nonprofits through organizational teaming
2. To encourage grantmakers to participate in funding initiatives where there is organizational teaming
3. To launch our HRP initiative targeting employment opportunities, job-based education and illnesses related to obesity, hypertension and diabetes
