Please join us on Thursday, December 13th at 7pm as we announce the recipients of QVNA’s 2018 Community Grants!
This important announcement takes place during QVNA’s Holiday Party at The Bagel Place (4th & Queen).
QVNA’s Community Grant Program provides funding to groups of neighbors who are planning a project to improve the neighborhood and enhance the quality of life of Queen Village residents. We accept grant requests for a wide range of projects and programs, such as enhancing parks, gardens, playgrounds, educational programs, neighborhood safety, clean & green projects, and historic preservation.
Grant applications are evaluated by the QVNA Grants Committee based on the:
- Degree to which the proposed project meets a community need
- Clarity of the project description
- Budget detail that reflects well-defined needs and reasonable costs
- Capacity of applicant organization to complete the project
In past years, QVNA grants have helped to fund projects like the Fulton Street Mural, a joint quality of life signage project with Paradigm Gallery and local street artist Kid Hazo, scholastic endeavors at Meredith and Nebinger Elementary, as well as improvements Southwark Queen Village Community Garden, Mario Lanza Park, Bodine Street Community Garden, Friends of Shot Tower and others.
