Earlier, we posted about opportunities for a single person or a small organization to improve their communities. We attended the webinar and received the recording of the presentation, application, and questions answered about the rules and how to apply. Below is the follow-up email and contact information to the stakeholders.
We strongly believe in helping our neighbors, so we are here to help.

Hello Community Members,
I am reaching out to provide you more information about the grant funding opportunity with the Houston Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC). This is a perfect opportunity to obtain funding to accomplish Kashmere Gardens Complete Communities Action Plan projects. LISC’s Great Opportunities (GO) Neighborhoods program has opened their 2021 Small Grants Cycle. Groups and organizations, such as Complete Communities, can apply to receive up to $5,000 in reimbursable grant funding to complete community projects that address housing, health, environment, economic development, family financial stability, and resident leadership and civic engagement. This grant does require a 2:1 match, but match can be provided through in-kind resources.
Should you need assistance with completing your grant application, the Planning & Development Department is hosting 2 virtual grant workshops to give your community’s proposal individual guidance. The dates are Tuesday, January 26 and Thursday, February 25 at 6:30 pm. Please see attached flyer for meeting details and share it with anyone else who may be interested.
Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
