If there’s something you’ve always wanted to do for South Park but didn’t know where to find funds, now’s your chance. Two City of Dayton neighborhood grants are back!

MIni-Grants are matching grants of up to $5,000 for physical improvements, marketing materials and community events.  Applications will be available June 23 at daytonohio.gov/minigrants and must be submitted by Friday, July 23.

Community Engagement Grants (Festival Grants) of up to $2,000 are for building community and identity through festivals. Up to two applications will be accepted per year per organization. Applications are available now at daytonohio.gov/communityengagement and may be submitted on an ongoing basis through November 30.

To learn about the grant guidelines, plan to attend either of two training sessions held at City Hall (101 W. Third St., second floor) on Thursday, June 17, at 10:30 a.m. or 5:30 p.m. You would be applying as a member/volunteer for Historic South Park, Inc.

Please contact Verletta Jackson at 937-333-3288 or [email protected] to RSVP for a training session or for more information.
