Mini Grants

(part of NIP for projects with a budget of less than $2,000)

Collister Neighborhood has applied for a mini grant for FY2019 and is planning on using these funds for our annual neighborhood picnic, providing snacks at neighborhood meetings, increasing outreach to neighbors, etc.

Art Grant

Our neighborhood has a pending art grant for nearly $30k from the city’s Arts and History Department. It was originally scoped to be used at the Fire Station on Sycamore, but now will be used elsewhere in the neighborhood.
