The Union Park 2019 Micro-Grant Program application is now available!
Individual residents and small groups of neighbors within the Union Park district are invited to apply for micro-grants to complete small projects within our community.
The purpose of this program is to provide people within our neighborhoods the opportunity to improve the quality of life in Union Park. Our goal is to fund projects that involve or engage the community and meet one or more of the following objectives:
- Increase the number and diversity of people who are involved and engaged in their neighborhoods and community
- Strengthen neighborhood capacity to build community identity, leadership, skills, relationships and partnerships
- Increase residents’ impact on public decisions and community life
Previous micro-grant projects include: Paint the Pavement, Shakespeare in the Park, an upcoming block party tent rental program from UPDC, and community plantings!
We encourage applicants to accomplish these goals by building partnerships between neighbors, businesses and other organizations. We also encourage the engagement of historically under-represented and under-served communities, including low-income families, people of color, young adults, immigrants, renters and people with disabilities.
Contact UPDC staff with questions, or for help completing the application, at email@example.com or (651) 645-6887.
