Looking for a way to spruce up your neighborhood? Come to the Neighborhood Innovation Grant Program information session to find out how.
The program provides funding of up to $2,000 for neighborhood improvement projects across the city. Projects must benefit the general public, and have a minimum of ten participants from two different groups.
Last year, the city dispersed $5,250 to six applicants. Between twenty different organizations, funds were matched to exceed $11,000. Various projects included community gardens, free wifi for public use, the revitalization of the Hadley Field Skate Park, flowers and flags promoting civic pride, the creation of the Celebration of Diversity Festival, and installing trash and recycling bins at the Gage Field.
The forum will be held on September 25th from noon-1pm in the Mayor’s Reception Room in City Hall. Learn from previous grant recipients, and meet potential partners for the up-coming grant cycle.
