VNC Seeks Applicants for 2015-16 Community Improvement Project Funding

The Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) is now accepting applications for community improvement projects in which funds up to $5,000 will be awarded to local groups and individuals to improve the quality-of-life in the Venice neighborhood.

Administered by the Venice Neighborhood Council, the VNC reserves the right to alter the amount due to reduced funding by the City of Los Angeles.

Applications will be accepted from Venice stakeholders and community based organizations. A community-based organization must be comprised of five or more Venice stakeholders. Qualifying organizations include homeowner associations, non-profits, neighborhood block groups, watch groups, faith-based organizations, PTAs and service organizations.

“Community Improvement Projects must provide a demonstrable benefit to Venice. The goal is to enhance Venice through beautification, community participation, education or capital improvement on public property,” noted President Mike Newhouse.

All projects submitted must conform to the funding guidelines of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment www.EmpowerLA.org.

Application packets are available by contacting Ivan Spiegel, who serves as the program administrator. He can be reached via e-mail at parliamentarian@VeniceNC.org
