[LIBERTY] – Opportunities for summer residents to enhance the appearance of their properties in Sullivan County are outlined in a new brochure released by Sullivan Renaissance.
“2010 Grants & Programs for Seasonal Communities” describes the programs in detail and provides useful information and tips for communities wishing to participate in the program or simply beautify their own property.
Seasonal communities include second home communities, bungalow colonies and summer camps.
Under its grant program, Sullivan Renaissance provides matching grants for seasonal residents to improve the appearance of their properties with projects that serve as an example for others. Available funding ranges from matching grants up to $2500 to reimbursable mini-grants up to $200.
Eligible projects include: fixing up entranceways and gates, planting flower gardens or other landscaping, removal of old structures and cleaning up dump sites, replacing fencing, upgrading signage, or simply planting flowers in planters or hanging baskets. Improvements are made in areas visible to the public.
“2010 Grants & Programs for Seasonal Communities” has already been mailed to over 80 summer camps in Sullivan County. To receive a copy, contact Richard Sush at 845-295-2441 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2009 three matching grants were given to bungalow colony and second-home communities, and two mini-grants were awarded to summer camps.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program funded by the Gerry Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
