ONLY ONE DAY LEFT to apply for up to $2,000 to beautify your neighborhood! #RichmondLoveYourBlock is looking for residents, local organizations, and community members to team up with each other to transform their blocks. Take a look at the grant application on the Love Your Block website (tinyurl.com/RichmondLoveYourBlock) and plan your #RichmondCA neighborhood beautification project now!
Still brainstorming? Here are some ideas YOUR neighbors came up with, and in many cases, brought to life:
• Building community gardens to increase access to healthy food,
• Creating public murals alongside community members to enliven/brighten up the area
• Hosting neighborhood clean ups to discourage littering and illegal dumping
• Planting trees and flowers along streets to make them more inviting and to improve air quality
• And more!
If you were unable to make any grant writing workshops, it's not too late: set up a meeting or phone conference to discuss your project ideas! The Love Your Block team is available by appointment today through 7:30 pm and has limited availability tomorrow morning. To set up your appointment, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications will be accepted until this Friday, November 4th at 11:59 pm. (The deadline to submit an application in person is November 4th at 3:00 pm.)
The Love Your Block team looks forward to hearing and reading about all of the innovative ideas you have for your neighborhood!
