Pittsburgh's Hill District gets a $3 million donation

Bank of New York Mellon announced this week that it would donate $3 million to Pittsburgh's Hill District. The One Hill Community Benefits Coalition, the Hill House Association and two advisory groups made up of representatives from each, will decide what to do with the money.

Some of the money, however, may go to building a Neighborhood Partnership Program--one of the provisions in the Penguins CBA. According to One Hill, the program will "support community and economic development, education and youth services, preservation and green spaces and drug, alcohol and mental health services in the Hill District." Bank of New York Mellon will also get a significant tax credit for donating the money to the program.
