100&Change Top 100: 2021

We work to end hunger and poverty in partnership with the communities we serve. Our programs support entrepreneurs around the world, creating lasting change from the ground up.

It begins with a seed investment of livestock or agriculture, followed by mentorship to help project participants build a business, and ultimately to gain access to supply chains and markets.

These families are able to earn a living income and continuously lift up their communities as they train the next generation of leaders.

By supporting and training the world's farmers, ranchers, and female business owners, we're investing in a new breed of success.

Launched in April 2019, 100&Change(2021) was MacArthur Foundation’s second global competition for a $100 million grant to fund a single proposal promising real and measurable progress in solving a critical problem of our time. 755 proposals were submitted to the competition and were evaluated using four criteria: whether the proposals were impactful, evidence-based, feasible, and durable. The Top 100 proposals were announced in February 2020 and six Finalists were announced in July 2020. In April 2021, MacArthur selected Community Solutions as the $100 million Awardee for its project to accelerate an end to homelessness in 75 U.S. communities in five years.
