One Northside Neighbor-to-Neighbor $1,000 Grants are Back!
Last year, in support of One Northside, the Sprout Fund helped fund 48 small-scale community projects in all 18 neighborhoods of the Northside. And they are ready to support 50 more this spring and summer!
Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grants of up to $1,000 provide funding for small-scale One Northside projects with broad citizen support. Projects may be one-time events, ongoing initiatives, or urgent innovations, and will be led by previous Neighbor-to-Neighbor project leaders, newcomers to the program, and creative collaborations among previously-supported project team members.
If you’re thinking about applying for a grant, Sprout is hosting several information sessions at the following Northside neighborhood locations:
- Monday, May 2 from 5:30-7:00 pm
Carnegie Library – Allegheny, 1230 Federal Street
