$50,000 For the “Diamond Neighborhood”

The San Diego Neighborhood Funders (SDNF) is funding $50,000 for residents to improve the community. Community residents are eligible to apply for Mini-Grants that range from $500-$5,000 to improve and strengthen their neighborhoods or volunteer as part of the Grant Selection Committee (volunteers to review, evaluate and select awardees). It is all about residents changing and making decisions about their own neighborhoods.

The eligible residents and neighborhoods are of the “Diamond Neighborhood” in the City of San Diego: Chollas View, Emerald Hills, Lincoln Park, Mount Hope, Mountain View, Oak Park, North Encanto, South Encanto, Valencia Park, and Webster.

If you, your family, or anyone you know live in one of the above communities and would like to get involved in serving on the selection committee or apply for a mini-grant contact: Mr. King, Director of SDNF Mini-Grant Program, PO Box 152301, San Diego, CA 92195, 619-248-5676 or fax 619-262-8477. E-mail: amzaire@pacbell.net.

Applications may be picked up in the Malcolm X Library (corner of Market Street and Euclid Avenue). The application deadline is November 1, 2002.
