SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE ANNOUNCES 33 GRANTS

Look for colorful additions to local communities

April 20, 2017

[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance announced close to $100,000 in grants to support 33 beautification projects throughout Sullivan County at it’s Spring Forum on Thursday.  The event marked the beginning of Sullivan Renaissance’s annual beautification contest.  Community organizations received grants, and additional resources including flower dollars, gardening information and technical support to help enhance their community.  Several projects will also receive help from gardening project assistants and the Renaissance Horticulture crew. 

The evening program featured a presentation by Horticulture Program Manager Diana K. Weiner and Horticulture Coordinator Cathleen Haines about creating and maintaining green spaces and landscapes.  They also discussed the benefits of connecting people and plants in public spaces.

THIRTY-THREE GRANTS ANNOUNCED (list attached)

Beautification grants were presented in several categories including:

           Garden – 9 single element projects received $1000 grants and $100 in flower dollars;

           Community – 5 multiple element projects received $2500 grants and $250 in flower dollars;

           Maintenance – 19 support grants ranging from $500 to $1500 for specific needs in each community. 

Beautification and maintenance efforts must be completed by August 1 and will be judged between August 3rd and 5th for a second round of Phase II grants ranging from $1000 and $12,000.  Winners will be announced at the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony on Monday, August 7 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel. 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Since 2001 Sullivan Renaissance has invested over $3.5 million in grants to community volunteer organizations.  These grants have leveraged over $10 million in beautification and community development throughout Sullivan County.  This year’s program is made possible with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.  For more information about programs or for ways to get involved, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit the website at http://www.sullivanrenaissance.org/.
