Introducing Armatage Neighborhood Mini Grants!
How can we make our neighborhood a better place and engage our neighbors? If you have ideas and want to implement them, the ANA has just launched a new Armatage Neighborhood Mini Grants Program. Grants are available for up to $1,000 and subject to the City requirements that prohibit spending on food or entertainment. Get all your questions answered at armatage.org/programs/mini-grants or at a Q & A session at our Annual Meeting on May 21.
