Each year ECWANDC must create and approve a Budget designating how the $42,000 it has to spend will be used. This Budget is then sent to the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment. Not only are there expenses like office space and printing, neighborhood councils are also encouraged to do Outreach and make grants.
If you are a 501(c)3, a Block Club, or a neighborhood group inside of ECWA’s area (refer to the map) you are invited to apply for a grant. Download the application. We suggest you attend several Town Hall and/or Board Meetings to understand the funding process and to speak with your Area Representative, who will be able to answer your questions.
