KEY INITIATIVES

Preference is given to proposals which support one or more of these key initiatives:

  • Improving the hamlet of Eden Center (the area generally on or near Main St., Church St., Green St., and Depot St.). This includes, for example: improving visual appearance; adding services for residents and visitors; revitalizing properties; and preserving historic sites.
  • Developing or improving spaces for community activities such as clubs, civic and other gatherings. This includes indoor and outdoor spaces whether existing, new, or repurposed.
  • Offering new programs or activities that enrich the lives of Eden residents.

In addition, funding can be available for projects which do not directly relate to these initiatives but still benefit Eden residents.

GRANT DUE DATES AND DECISIONS

Requests will be reviewed twice each year with applications due March 1st and October 1st. Applicants will be told if their grant request was approved approximately two months following the due date.
