[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance continues to promote efforts to beautify public spaces, revitalize communities, and engage the diverse cultures of Sullivan County through grants to organizations, businesses, churches, schools and individuals to build beautiful, healthy and active communities. The Sullivan Renaissance 2018 grant season launched on January 1, and applications were released online at SullivanRenaissance.org.
Several grant opportunities are offered, ranging from mini grants for beginning efforts to community-wide beautification for more extensive and involved projects. Other grant categories include business assistance, technical assistance, healthy community initiatives and multicultural outreach.
Youth between the ages of 16 and 20 can explore potential summer employment opportunities by calling the office or viewing the intern application online in the grants section.
Those considering a new project such as installing new welcome or directional signs, planting street trees, creating a park or adding hanging baskets and containers to storefronts or Main Streets may consider talking with Sullivan Renaissance staff about their ideas. Staff are available to visit communities and organizations to help with project planning, garden design, and the application process.
Applications, along with required documentation, can be submitted via e-mail or mail by March 1, 2018. Information about all grant categories, applications and contact information can be found at SullivanRenaissance.org or by calling 845-295-2445.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by The Gerry Foundation.
