Nano Grants Help To Build Community In Covington

Apr 1, 2016

Activities such as art walks for the visually impaired, porch caroling and community park parties make a neighborhood more vibrant. These projects and more have been made possible by Nano Grants, small grants of $250 given out by The Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington. They are available to residents, students and workers for creative ideas that bring people together.

A Cincinnati Council majority is ready to approve a plan to allocate federal funds that make cuts to some popular programs.  The Budget and Finance Committee yesterday passed a proposal spending Community Development Block Grant dollars.

The federal money is being shifted in part to pay for part of Mayor John Cranley's Hand Up initiative to reduce poverty.  

But the proposal means some other popular programs in the city will see reduced funding or no money at all.
