Renton, WA: The City of Renton Neighborhood Program is pleased to offer 2011 mini grants to qualifying neighborhoods to assist in neighborhood-based communications activities. Mini grants for communications are available to all neighborhood groups and/or homeowners associations that are officially recognized by the city’s Neighborhood Program. These grants can be used to offset the cost of printing, mailing or electronic distribution, and development of newsletters, flyers or posters.

Funding for the mini grants is based on a standard of $1.00 annually per household contacted. For example, if your neighborhood has 100 residents and each household is contacted, you may apply for $100 per year in grant funds, if you meet grant stipulations.

Eligible organizations include organized neighborhood associations that draw membership from commonly recognized geographic neighborhoods in Renton, or ad hoc groups of neighbors who form an organization to work on a specific project.

Grant applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 11, 2011. Applications may be mailed to 1055 South Grady Way, Renton, WA 98057; faxed to 425-430- 6603; completed online at rentonwa.gov; or emailed to nmcquiller@rentonwa.gov. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered for this round of funding.

For more information, contact Neighborhood Program Coordinator Norma McQuiller at 425-430-6595 or nmcquiller@rentonwa.gov or Neighborhood Program Assistant Wendy Kirchner at 425-430-6594 or wkirchner@rentonwa.gov.
