The Heinz Endowments’ grant-making program devoted to increasing economic opportunity in the Pittsburgh region has a new director and a new focus, underscoring the foundation’s decision to broaden its grant making to include significant economic development in specific geographic areas.

The program area will continue to support technology industry sectors and seed innovative ideas in emerging lines of business as it has for most of the past six years.

Staff is now working to update the goals and strategies to better reflect the exciting opportunities offered in the new direction of this program area, and they will be posted to this section of the site soon.
