Due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy on organizations throughout our community, the deadline for the Park Slope Civic Council’s community grants program has been extended. Applications are now due Friday, Nov. 9, 2012.
You can download an application here. Grant recipients will be named in early 2013.
Every year, the program provides up to $10,000 to local nonprofits and noncommercial organizations. The grants — which are awarded to community groups for projects in the arts, education, youth programs, and civic improvements available to residents of Park Slope — certainly make a difference to these groups, especially in this challenging economic climate. The awards range from about $500 to one annual Community Builder grant of $2,000. Sometimes, these funds can fully cover an applicant’s project.
