The Union Park District Council is proud to announce its new Union Park Micro-Grant Program. We are inviting individual residents and small groups of neighbors within the Union Park district to apply for micro-grants to complete small projects within our community.
The purpose of this program is to provide people within our neighborhoods the opportunity to improve the quality of life in Union Park. Our goal is to fund projects that involve or engage the community and meet one or more of the following objectives:
- Increase the number and diversity of people who are involved and engaged in their neighborhoods and community
- Strengthen neighborhood capacity to build community identity, leadership, skills, relationships and partnerships
- Increase residents’ impact on public decisions and community life
We encourage applicants to accomplish these goals by building partnerships between neighbors, businesses and other organizations. We also encourage the engagement of historically under-represented and under-served communities, including low-income families, people of color, young adults, immigrants, renters and people with disabilities.
Applications are due no later than April 30, 2017
