A finalist for a $25,000 national grant needs online votes from the public to help local, at-risk students find stable housing. Of 2,000 applicants nationwide, judges with the State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant program have advanced 200 proposals, including a plan by Akron Hope to build community connections through student mentoring, tutoring and other volunteer services then use those connections to help families find secure housing in a transient neighborhood full of rental properties.

The public can go online at through Aug. 23 to browse and vote for each of the 200 proposals. The top 40 vote getters each get $25,000. Participants can vote 10 times a day from as many email addresses as they wish to create. Read more here >>.
