[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance is continuing to accept applications for early admission to its 2016 community beautification and maintenance support programs.
“Applications for our maintenance, garden and community grant programs will be received until March 16, 2016; but if communities know now that they will be applying for assistance from Sullivan Renaissance they can take advantage of this opportunity to complete the paperwork before the spring,” said Diana Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator.
Sullivan Renaissance representatives will meet with individuals and organizations in their communities to assess sites for both new projects and maintenance of existing gardens. Staff members will visit at an applicant’s convenience to explain the changes, review garden designs and volunteer management plans, and assist with applications.
Some of the grant categories have been given new names for 2016, with changes in funding amounts and other details. A new Municipal Partnership Grant Program has been established to engage towns and villages in supporting volunteer beautification efforts while improving code enforcement.

Early admission is available only for the community beautification and maintenance support programs. Other Sullivan Renaissance grant programs retain their traditional application deadlines which vary based on the program.
