Below is the text of the City's October 2nd news release:

Through the City of Tacoma’s 2017 Neighborhood Innovative Grant Program, community groups within Tacoma’s eight Neighborhood Council district can apply – now through December 15 – for grant funding supporting neighborhood improvement activities or projects.
Most grants requested and approved are in the range of $500 to $8,000. Each Neighborhood Council will select the projects to be funded within their respective Neighborhood Council district, limited to available funds in each Neighborhood Council.
“If you have an innovative idea to engage with your community and improve your neighborhood, we invite you to apply for a small grant to make it happen,” said Program Manager Shari Hart. “Over the years, we have funded hundreds of impactful projects through this program.”
