About The Renewal Awards
The Atlantic’s Renewal Awards recognize local organizations driving positive change in their communities and bringing progress to the country. Now in its third year, the awards will culminate in March 2018 with five winners each receiving a $20,000 grant and five runners-up each receiving a $10,000 grant from Allstate to further their work. The Renewal Awards seek to illuminate creative solutions from local organizations and individuals that band together to confront the biggest challenges facing the country. Allstate is the underwriter of The Renewal Awards.
