Neighborhood and Community Development Seed Grant

Program Provides Assistance with Neighborhood and Community Initiatives


 The City of Worthington Community Relations Commission invites resident groups to apply for a Neighborhood and Community Development Seed Grant. The purpose of this grant program is to encourage strong neighborhoods, and to encourage community activities that align with the mission of the CRC – to promote tolerance, diversity and inclusiveness in Worthington. Each year, the CRC will also pick an additional priority to encourage positive community engagement and change on a specific topic. In 2017, this topic is awareness of Mental Health Issues and access to Mental Health resources.   Grant application forms are due by May 12, 2017.
