Mid-City West Grant Deadline Extended

Back in March, we passed along information about the Neighborhood Purpose Grants being offered by the Mid-City West Community Council for community beautification and other neighborhood-benefitting projects.  The deadline for grant applications, open to local public schools and other 501(c)(3) organizations within or serving the MCWCC area (see map above), was originally set to be April 3…but the Council announced recently that due to COVID-19 considerations, the deadline has now been extended to June 1.

According to the announcement:

“501(c)3 nonprofits and public schools are encouraged to submit applications for projects that provide community benefit for MCW stakeholders. Applicants may apply for awards of up to $5,000. Selected projects may range from seed funding to start a community garden, local beautification activities, or neighborhood resource fairs within Mid City West boundaries.

Completed applications must include the following:

    • NPG Application, completed and signed
    • Project Budget, submitted on a separate sheet if more room is needed
    • MCW Application Addendum
    • Nonprofit applicants must submit organization’s IRS Letter of Determination
    • Public school applicants must also submit a letter on school letterhead signed by the Principal

All NPG grant application materials and instructions can be found here. Completed applications should be emailed to MCW Nonprofit Representative Lauren Nichols at [email protected].

So if your school or organization was intending to apply, but got sidetracked by everything else going on the world right now, don’t worry – you have a lot more time to finish your application!
