2019 Mini Grant Information
RFP Available Now
YVPC-D is interested in providing mini-grants to non-profit organizations and/or local, grassroots initiatives with a focus on directly impacting the Montbello neighborhood and ability to support the Steps to Success Master Community-Building Plan. The Master CommunityBuilding Plan was developed to impact a risk factor prioritized by community members called “Low Neighborhood Attachment” which is proven by research to contribute to violence.
The YVPC-D and Steps to Success intend to provide mini-grants during years 2, 3, and 4 of the grant. The intended purpose of these mini-grants is to increase community engagement in Montbello, so that local community members feel more connected to the amenities, businesses, community organizations, and services available in the neighborhood. Community efforts should also directly involve youth and help them to become more involved in neighborhood activities. These mini- grants may fund a specific project (ex. new community garden), support staff time, purchase materials/supplies for a community meeting or event, etc. Funds will be available once the proposal is approved and will be disseminated in a lump sum by the Steps to Success Nonprofit.
