Bay Mini-Grant Workshop Set for Aug. 3
A FREE workshop to assist those interested in applying for a Tampa Bay Estuary Program Bay Mini-Grant will be held Wednesday, August 3, from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council in Pinellas Park. Space is limited and reservations are required.
The deadline for submitting a grant proposal is 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. Grants will be awarded in mid-November and must be completed within one year.
TBEP annually offers small grants of up to $5,000 for bay improvement projects proposed by citizen groups and organizations in Hillsborough, Manatee and Pinellas counties. Schools, civic associations, non-profit organizations and other community groups are encouraged to apply. Proposals will be evaluated by members of TBEPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Community Advisory Committee. Grants will be awarded in mid-November and must be completed within one year.
Thanks to all who purchased a Tampa Bay Estuary specialty license plate (featuring a tarpon), approximately $75,000 will be available for Mini-Grants in the coming year. The maximum grant amount is $5,000, but requests for as little as $500 are acceptable.
To make reservations for the workshop, call or email Misty Cladas at (727) 893-2765.
