Do you know who lives next door or down the block?
City of Palo Alto has just launched a new "Know your Neighbors" grant pilot program. The program will assist resident groups engaging in activities that build a sense of community, develop or renew neighborhood relationships, encourage interaction between generations and cultures, or develop collaborative partnerships between Palo Alto neighborhoods and the City. The City Council has allocated $25,000 for the 2013 pilot program. The maximum grant amount is $1,000 and grants will be awarded on a "first come, first serve" basis until the allocated funding is depleted.
The 2013 "Know Your Neighbors" Grant Program is a one year program designed to help neighbors better connect with each other while strengthening community and improving the quality of life and neighborhoods in Palo Alto.
