HMB Beautification Committee grant applications available

Press release

By on Fri, February 27, 2009

The Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee are accepting applications for their annual distribution of grants. The deadline is March 31.

Last year, $95,000 was awarded to coastside non-profits, educational organizations and municipal agencies.

Funding for the grants comes from the annual Art & Pumpkin Festival, which is organized and operated by the Beautification Committee.

To qualify for consideration applicants must complete and submit the grant request form by the March 31 deadline, show current documentation of non-profit status, and serve residents of the coastside area, from Montara to Pescadero.

Applications will be considered from non-profit organizations serving children, youth, families, and seniors, as well as for Main Street and community projects.

Applications from political organizations will not be considered, nor will requests that include payment of staff salary or consultant fees.

The donations are a one-time contribution per fiscal year and should not be considered an ongoing part of an organization’s operating expenses.
To request an application, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee, PO Box 274, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019.
