Mini Grant Information 2019
Grantwriting and Evaluation Workshop
Steps to Success and the Montbello Organizing Committee co-sponsored a 2-day workshop in March 2019 to provide basic information on grant writing and evaluation in order to build the capacity of Montbello-serving entities to increase their funding and resources. Entities and individuals wishing to apply for a Steps to Success Community Mini-grant may bring draft proposals for individual technical assistance.
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.
Congratulations to our 2019 Mini Grant Awardees
