Municipalities and Volunteers come together to create, beautify and care for public spaces

Sullivan Renaissance announced $150,000 in grants to support beautification and community development projects throughout Sullivan County at its Spring Market and Annual Conference at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts last weekend. Grant amounts range from $500 to $25,000 and are accompanied by additional resources, and, in some cases summer interns or assistance from the Renaissance Horticulture Crew.

Alongside volunteer led projects; Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther introduced this year’s Municipal Partnership grant recipients - the towns of Fallsburg, Liberty, Thompson, Tusten and the Village of Woodridge for enhanced code enforcement, care of public spaces and building healthy communities.

The conference and grant announcements mark the commencement of Sullivan Renaissance’s 18th grant season. This year the focus is “Love Where you Live.”

During the conference, Executive Director Denise Frangipane said, “Sullivan Renaissance, with the generosity of the Gerry Foundation, offers grants, technical assistance and other resources. It is all of you who are turning those grants and resources into communities where people love to live and visit.”

Anyone interested in volunteering for a project is invited to a Volunteer Orientation on May 9, 2018 at 6pm at CVI in Ferndale. Gardening experience is not required, there are many ways to get involved.

Several grant programs are still available on a rolling deadline. Contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845.295.2445 for information on grants or volunteer opportunities.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, DV8 Magazine, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat, and the Times Herald Record.
