Newton Community Pride will open applications starting March 1 for “micro grants” to support programs for arts, culture, service, and beautification in the community.
Blair Sullivan, Newton Community Pride’s executive director, said the organization “believes strongly in providing seed money to support great ideas, local events, and service projects that enhance our villages and build community.”
“To many artists, small nonprofits, and neighborhood groups, a little bit of financial support goes a long way in building their mission to provide arts programming, service, and beautification projects. NCP is happy to help,” Sullivan said in a statement.
All micro grant applications are due April 1. More information is available at newtoncommunitypride.org/application-for-support/.
Past grants have averaged between $700 and $1,100, and recipients have included the Newton Theatre Company, Juneteenth Celebration, Jewish Arts Collaborative, Newton Pan Asian Cultural Festival, public art murals at NewCity Church and in Nonantum, and Newton Indigenous Peoples Day.
