The Community Foundation is currently partnering with the City of Atlanta and Hands On Atlanta in a city-led impact service initiative, “Love Your Block,” where residents are encouraged to participate in beautification projects and programs specific to their community. With the support of Home Depot and UPS Foundations, Atlanta residents are eligible to apply for mini grants up to $1,000 to improve their communities.
Examples of how citizens can “love their block” include participating in an existing “clean and green” project, connecting and volunteering with a local nonprofit or organizing their own block revitalization project through a Love Your Block grant.
There will be two opportunities to apply for funding in 2013. The first deadline is January 8. The second deadline is May 1, 2013.
