From the Seattle Housing Authority's press release:

The Seattle Housing Authority is the recipient of a 2020 Uber Community Impact Initiative grant worth $20,000, which will primarily be used by residents participating in SHA’s youth engagement programs. 

“The Seattle Housing Authority appreciates support from Uber in meeting the transportation needs of our young residents, who might otherwise not be able to participate in important development opportunities,” said SHA Executive Director, Andrew Lofton. 

In 2019, Uber provided a $10,000 grant to help SHA residents. More than 550 Uber rides, covering more than 3,300 miles, transported seniors with mobility issues to healthcare appointments and delivered youth to career exploration events, job readiness trainings and life skills workshops.
