What can get funded? QVNA will accept grant requests from $500. The range of projects can include greening, sustainability, historic preservation, beautification, safety, schools/education, health—any project that affects quality of life issues for residents of Queen Village will be considered.

Timeframe:  Please submit your requests to info@qvna.org by October 15th, this is a firm deadline. In November, additional information will be solicited as needed and the Grants Committee will evaluate proposals. At the December 2016 Board Meeting, the QVNA Board will approve recommendations made by the Grants Committee. Awards will be announced at the QVNA Holiday Party later in December.

Please note that funding will be allocated as a reimbursement or direct payment for items. QVNA will not give money for DonorsChoose projects if they have funding by the time grant recipients are announced.
