Step Up Suncoast has been named the region’s 2021 Bank of America "Neighborhood Champion" for its work in Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Sarasota and Manatee counties to empower individuals and families to achieve long-term economic stability through education, support services and community partnerships. The organization will receive $50,000 in grant support from the bank to expand its Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program through intentional outreach with Manatee County Title I Schools. The FSS program financially supports individuals seeking a college or technical degree that will provide them a living wage job upon graduation.

As Neighborhood Champion, Step Up Suncoast will participate in virtual leadership training delivered by experts in the nonprofit sector on topics like human capital management, increasing financial sustainability and storytelling.
