- Austintown Rotary was Instrumental in $100,000.00 Community Grant:  In 2016 , members of the Austintown Rotary began an initiative to explore how the club could leverage its experience and community reach to help facilitate communication between the townships businesses and administrators, as well as prospective employers and employees.  The initiative fell under the general Rotary area of service of economic and community development.  To read more on this project, click on this link.
