[FERNDALE] – Do you have an idea to beautify a public space in your community? Is there a garden, park or gateway that volunteers could help spruce up? Would funding or other resources help you to achieve this vision? It is not too early to consider a Sullivan Renaissance grant to support your efforts.
The 2018 Sullivan Renaissance grant applications will be released in January; but site visits and help with design can begin now, before the first snow! Eligible projects include welcome signs and gardens, park, façade and streetscape enhancements. Grants are also available for businesses who want to spruce up their curb appeal; and for seasonal or multi-cultural neighborhoods and communities.
Interested communities or groups can meet with Renaissance staff on location for help with designing a garden, selecting plants, and developing volunteer and community support.
“Whether your community or organization has been involved in Sullivan Renaissance or has not yet participated, a site visit would be an excellent way to get started or move forward,” said Diana K. Weiner, Horticulture Program Manager.
To set up a site visit call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445. To learn more about the grant programs visit www.SullivanRenaissance.org or connect on Facebook..
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
