The City of Spokane is putting the call out for more projects meant to green and beautify its neighborhoods.
Neighborhoods can receive a maximum of three grants of up to $5,000 each. Grant projects must include designs that involve planting trees, shrubs, grasses, and other native perennials through a neighborhood volunteering event.
This year, ONS is encouraging neighborhoods to include more trees in their design projects by creating a Competitive Grant Criteria. This criteria will give points to projects that plant trees, leverage funding by working with local neighborhood organizations for donations, and create volunteer events.
