Sprout is offering Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grants of up to $1,000 to provide immediate support for small-scale community projects with broad citizen support. Prospective applicants are encouraged to use this opportunity to raise awareness about innovative new North Side projects, events, and activities.
During January, information sessions about the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grants are being held at various locations around the North Side. During the information sessions, you will be able to meet with Sprout staff to learn more about the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grants in advance of preparing an application. To attend an information session, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and home neighborhood.
An information session is scheduled at Carnegie Library – Allegheny on Friday, January 30, from 11:00 to 12:00 noon. The information session will be followed by a free broadcast of ioby.org Crowdfunding Webinar Training from 12:30 to 1:30 pm.
Sprout will begin accepting applications on February 6, 2015 for neighbor-to-neighbor projects. Project activities must begin by June 30, 2015 and conclude by September 15, 2015.
