Calling all dreamers, makers, and world-changers: do you have a small but powerful idea for strengthening your neighborhood? Perhaps you want to revive a forgotten city tradition? Paint an intersection mural? Host a tenant organizing workshop?
SE Uplift Wants to Help You Make It Happen!
SE Uplift invites ordinary Portlanders like you to shape and create your neighborhood by applying for a Neighborhood Small Grant. Grants range from $300-$4,000 and are intended to spur small, grassroots community efforts aimed at connecting and engaging residents, building community capacity, improving neighborhood livability, or increasing community impact on public decision making. Through this grant you can tap into your creativity and leadership to develop projects that improve your community.
Grant information workshops will be held at SE Uplift (3534 SE Main St) on Monday, October 24th from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM, Saturday, November 19th from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM, and Sunday, November 20th from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. They are a great opportunity to learn more about the application process, get feedback on project ideas, and network with others. Applications for Neighborhood Small Grants are due by January 10th, 2017.
Please RSVP for one of the workshops here.
