Small St. Louis Neighborhood Sustainability Grants Available this Summer

Are you part of a group who could use $5,000 to improve your neighborhood this summer?

The City of St. Louis 2013 Sustainable Neighborhood Small Grant Competition invites teams of city residents, neighborhood organizations, schools, religious organizations, and community groups to propose sustainable projects for their own neighborhood. Seven $5,000 grants will be awarded to winning projects.

Catherine Werner, Sustainability Director from the City of St. Louis Mayor's Office, will describe the Competition at a free information session May 16 for potential applicants from 6-7 pm in the 2nd floor training room at Central Library.

To win, a project must be submitted on behalf of at least one of the 79 official City of St. Louis neighborhoods. A project team must include an organization that has not-for-profit status and who can serve as fiscal representative if awarded the prize money.  Grant applications for projects must be submitted online by June 15.  Go to http://sustainableneighborhood.net/ for details.
