This round of grants will give special consideration to projects focused on making Orange’s streets safer!
Orange is full of talented people with exciting ideas about how to make the city a better place. We are supporting resident-led projects in the Heart of Orange neighborhood to build community, cultivate neighborhood leadership, expand activities for youth, promote wellness and health and to more generally celebrate the diversity of people living in this city.
We are accepting applications from resident groups for projects in the Heart of Orange neighborhood. Groups may be long-standing, newly established or in the process of forming, and are not required to have non-profit or 501(c)(3) status.
Submitting an application is easy: Describe a project to strengthen your community that can be carried out from July-November 2017 and provide a budget of up to $500.
We look for projects that: are clear and thoughtful; address important community concerns; contribute to building stronger communities through neighbors working together; and result in concrete and sustainable improvements.
Applications are accepted until November 6, 2017
Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis beginning November 15, 2017.
These grants are NOT for: individuals; for-profit projects; businesses; organizations with paid staff; religious, fraternal, and partisan organizations; projects affiliated with staffed organizations; groups that have received Neighborhood Project Grants in the last year. We also do not fund the following: rent, utilities, web hosting, web development, 501(c)(3) incorporation fees, salaries, speaker honorariums, and computer equipment.
