Every year, we invite organizations, educators, and youth to apply for mini-grants to help fund creative neighborhood events. All mini-grant applicants are offered materials and training to support their events (even if their proposals are not funded). Mini-grants average between $100-$750.
We are no longer accepting mini-grant applications for 2014. We’ll begin accepting applications for 2015 in October.
