Share Your Beautification Plans for 2012 With Sullivan Renaissance


Let Sullivan Renaissance Know What You’re Thinking for 2012

[FERNDALE] – As Sullivan Renaissance finalizes plans for 2012, it is asking groups and individuals now to describe the kind of projects they might like to do next year.

New groups should complete an “Expression of Interest” form which is available from Sullivan Renaissance. Filling out the form does not obligate an individual or organization to submit an application, nor does it guarantee funding. Groups that had projects in 2011 have already indicated their future plans when they completed their end-of-season survey.

The types of projects Sullivan Renaissance traditionally funds include:

  • Beautification Grants

- Category A (single element projects)

- Category B (multiple element projects at one location

- Category C (multiple element projects at multiple locations)

- Maintenance grants for long-term projects

- Community development grants

  • Seasonal Demonstration Grants
  • Mini-grants for Beautification
  • School and Youth Initiatives
  • Technical Assistance Grants
  • Environmental Initiatives

Groups that would like to explore possible projects or need assistance in planning are encouraged to call the Sullivan Renaissance office. Organizations that have not been part of the Sullivan Renaissance program in the past should contact us prior to submitting an application.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
