NBCUniversal Local Impact Grants applications 2024 – NBC New York

NEW YORK – In service to the Tri-State community, NBC 4 New York/WNBC, Telemundo 47/WNJU and Comcast NBCUniversal announced that applications are being accepted for their annual competitive grant challenge, NBCUniversal Local Impact Grants. Local non-profits can learn more and apply for $227,272 in unrestricted funds by visiting or through Friday, April 19 with winners chosen later this year. Organizations interested in learning more about this year’s grant program can register here to join an informational webinar on April 2 at 1 PM. 

“Over the past seven years, WNBC through Local Impact Grants has awarded more than $1.5 million to 37 Tri-State non-profits. These funds have been an important investment in our communities by supporting job training, financial literacy, after-school activities and anti-hunger efforts, all of which have made an impact across the Tri-State area,” said Eric Lerner, President and General Manager of NBC 4 New York.

“At Telemundo 47, we know that our local non-profit community is consistently asked to do more with less, while the demand for their important services continues to rise. This is why our Local Impact Grants are so timely. Funds awarded through our competitive grant program are doing more than maintaining vital services and strengthening the safety net – they are helping families reach their dreams,” said Cristina Schwarz, President and General Manager of Telemundo 47.
