The mini-grant orientation online training will review the application, grant criteria, projects that qualify for the mini-grant and answer any questions you have regarding the mini-grant.
There is a verification code at the end of the training webinar that must be written on the application being submitted.
No application will be accepted without training verification code.
For more information, please contact the Office of Neighborhood Relations at (813) 272-5860.
We urge neighborhood leaders to think creatively when brainstorming about projects and types of community involvement. The review committee favors applications with matching funds or that involve other forms of leveraged community support. The maximum grant per association is $2,500.
The Neighborhood Mini-Grant Evaluation Committee uses questions to evaluate each mini-grant application.
