BNMC Awards Micro-Grants to 12 Local Organizations
The BNMC is excited to announce that we have selected 12 organizations out 37 applicants to receive a total of $39,000 in our 2nd annual Spark micro-grant program!
Local community members and organizations were invited to apply for grant funding for projects and programs that help to showcase the neighborhoods adjacent to the Medical Campus as active, vibrant places. Some of this year’s funded projects include a technology upgrade for the Salvation Army’s Youth Drop-in Center, DSLR cameras for Locust Street Art’s photography classes, and nutrition education and job readiness training for Groundwork Buffalo’s Fresh Food Fellows. Other projects include community gardens, restoration projects, music and art programs, and more.
