How could you use $1,000 to benefit your Northside neighborhood? One Northside Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grants are back to help you bring your ideas to life in 2017.
One Northside is a community-driven initiative created to improve the quality of life in all 18 neighborhoods of the Northside. Since early 2014, hundreds of Northside residents have engaged with local leaders and stakeholders in community-wide conversations to create a shared agenda for the revitalization of this vital component of the greater Pittsburgh region. In 2017, The Sprout Fund, in partnership with the Buhl Foundation, is once again offering catalytic support to advance the One Northside vision with Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grants of up to $1,000. Applicants must live or work on the Northside and funded project activities must take place in one of the 18 neighborhoods of the Northside. Applications will be accepted on June 9, July 7, and August 4.
Come to one of the Information Sessions that will be held throughout May, June, and July. A short presentation will be followed by time for questions, and for meeting other Northsiders.
