~ from the Office of Neighborhoods

The Office of Neighborhoods is hosting three mandatory workshops for the Neighborhood Small Grants Program (NSGP).

All applicants must be resident-led, resident-controlled, and democratically run neighborhood organizations and attend ONE of the three mandatory grant workshops. The dates are as follows:
* Tuesday, June 23, at 6 p.m.
* Saturday, June 27, at 10 a.m.
* Wednesday, July 8, at 6 p.m.

In order to practice effective social distancing, the workshops are limited to 10 participants each. Please send one neighbor per neighborhood to allow space for other neighborhoods to participate. Contact Eden Slater at eslater@knoxvilletn.gov or 215-2113 to register and receive the location.

Do you have a fun project you would like to see come to fruition in your neighborhood? Maybe you want to plan an event to gain more participants for your neighborhood organization, buy some materials and signs to calm traffic, or buy fruit trees to plant in your neighborhood green space.

Each neighborhood is unique! Regardless of your neighborhood project, consider applying for the NSGP. The NSGP offers neighborhood grants from $500 to $3,000 (or up to $4,500 if you partner with another non-profit or neighborhood organization). You can apply for projects specific to your neighborhood, so long as they are neighborhood-centric and designed to bring neighbors together.
