Mini Grants Available for Newport Projects
After announcing the Quality of Life plan earlier this year, ReNewport has established a mini-grant program to start the process of implementing that plan and to fund community engagement efforts.
The grants will offer financial support to residents looking to advance ReNewport's goals and all ideas centered on improving the quality of life in Newport.
Competitive mini-grants of up to $500 may be awarded for qualifying projects or activities. In order to promote greater cooperation between resident-based groups from separate neighborhoods to work together on joint projects, two or more resident-based groups (i.e.: neighborhood associations, issue centered groups, and so forth) which work together on a single project may submit one grant application and request a maximum of $750.00 per each group involved for that joint project.
