The City of Newport has established a mini grant program to help start the process of implementing ReNewport. The grants will help fund community engagement efforts for Newport residents who want to help advance the program’s goals.
There are six categories that the community wants to see improvement upon by the year 2025: education; health, safety and wellness; housing; economic development; parks, recreation and beautification; and community engagement.
Applications are now being accepted for the first round of mini grants. All projects must center on improving the quality of life in Newport aligned with the categories of interest, and all applicants must either live or work in Newport.
Grants are available in amounts up to $500. Two or more groups that work together on a single project can submit one grant application and request a maximum of $750 for their joint project.
The first round of mini grant applications are due by May 31, the second round of applications by Aug. 31 and the third round by Nov. 30.
