Awards for 2013 mini-grants have been selected!
Every year, Celebrate Urban Birds invites organizations, educators, and youth to apply for mini-grants to help fund creative neighborhood events. Proposals should integrate the arts, greening, birds and community involvement. All mini-grant applicants are offered materials and training to support their events (even if their proposals are not funded). Organizations working with underserved communities are strongly encouraged to apply. No experience with birding needed. Mini-grants average $100 to $500.
