2013 Neighborhood Small Grant Recipients Announced

The Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) has allocated $21,603 in grant funds to SE Uplift for management of the 2013 Neighborhood Small Grant Program. This grant program provides neighborhood and community-based organizations the opportunity to build community, attract new and diverse members, and sustain current membership. Twenty grant proposals were received by the November 5, 2012 deadline, requesting a total of $55,698.45.

After evaluation and deliberation, the grant selection committee unanimously recommended the funding of fifteen outstanding projects ranging from community theater workshops to neighborhood tree plantings, leadership trainings for day laborers to school gardens, community murals to cultural arts classes, and outreach to non-English speakers to family recreation nights, and much more!

These recommended projects are excellent examples of how the community is working together to improve the quality of our neighborhoods by building community, increasing volunteer capacity and forging new organizational partnerships through sustainable projects. The grant selection committee believes that the Neighborhood Small Grant Program adds enormous value to the community and to the Neighborhood Associations within our coalition area.
