This year, successful grant applicants are eligible to receive up to $1,000 for their project, compared to $500 offered in previous years. Additionally, graffiti abatement and community garden projects are now eligible for funding.

Factors such as the use of native and drought-tolerant plants, maintenance and sustainability, and community and volunteer involvement will be part of the rating criteria. Youth involvement is highly encouraged. Further rating criteria is outlined in the grant application.

For more information or to get an application, please contact Brian Fowls at (937) 224-8831 or visit www.kmcbohio.org. The deadline for applications is March 14, 2014.
