2012 Applications Now Available for
New Haven Neighborhood Leadership Grants
Deadline to apply is February 13, 2012
The Neighborhood Leadership Grant Program, formerly known as The Neighborhood Small Grant Program, works with resident leaders in New Haven neighborhoods to make our community a better place. We believe that resident leaders have the power to influence what happens in a neighborhood and the ability to build community where they live. We believe that all communities have assets, which include neighborhood residents, local institutions, and private and public resources. Furthermore, we believe that by supporting neighborhood leaders we facilitate their ability to inspire other residents to act in their own self-interest and the well being of their community.
The New Haven Neighborhood Leadership Grant Program provides grants up to $3,000 and Leadership Workshops to help you to contribute to positive change in your neighborhood. Participation in Leadership Workshops is required.
This year, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven will prioritize activities that enhance student achievement; support a college going culture; help reduce violence; and promote infant health.
A complete set of Application and Guidelines is available online at our website www.cfgnh.org/NeighborhoodLeadership.
It must be submitted by 12:00 pm on February 13, 2012.
