We are pleased to announce that our community group has been awarded
two separate grants to assist us with fundraising for our planning
$500 Grant from Bill de Blasio’s office
Bill de Blasio’s office has given us this money in support of our
community planning workshop process. As you all may recall, we need to
raise money to pay for staff and materials for the workshops. This
contribution is very helpful in helping us meet our goal. Our thanks to
Councilmember de Blasio and his staff.
Independence Community Foundation Matching Grant
Tom Angotti, professor of Urban Affairs and Planning at the Hunter
College Center for Community Planning and Development included our
group in a grant he applied for from the Independence Community
Foundation and he got the grant! So, that means that any money we raise
will be matched by the grant. So, while we originally needed to raise
$5,000, this brings our goal down to $2,500. Thanks, Tom!
