"Action Greensboro is pioneering a new method of community development by way of a micro-grant program, titled Spark Fund! The fund aims to support unexpected, fun and exciting projects in downtown Greensboro with an effort to create buzz and community involvement.
Recognizing that big ideas do not need a lot of money to get off the ground, Action Greensboro will make quarterly grants to individuals, businesses or non-profits looking to launch new projects that will improve downtown and make it a better place to live, work and play.
Proposed projects must be consistent with Action Greensboro's mission and projects must demonstrate the potential for long term impact on Downtown Greensboro. Grants may not exceed $5,000. The first deadline for the first Spark Fund micro-grant is July 17, 2015 and the application is available online here."
