Nashville is one of 18 U.S. cities receiving grant money to promote volunteer work through a round of grants announced Wednesday from the Cities of Service organization.

In Music City, a $25,000 grant is slated for increasing the energy-efficiency of 50 homes in low-income neighborhoods, according to Cities of Service.

The grants announced Wednesday are part of an initial round of funding. An additional $1 million is expected to be distributed in 2013.

The Cities of Service is a coalition of mayors across the U.S. that focuses on what they call “impact volunteering” or volunteer strategies that target community needs. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is one of the 17 founding mayors.

Other cities receiving grants are: Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Baltimore; Birmingham, Ala.; Duluth, Minn.; Fall River, Maine; Flint, Mich.; Indianapolis; Kalamazoo, Mich.; Little Rock, Ark.; Orlando, Fla.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pierre, S.D.; Pittsburgh; Providence, R.I.; and Richmond, Calif.
