Entry Beautification Grants


Your NBCA is excited to continue to sponsor a fantastic program for 2013 to keep our neighborhoods blooming! It’s a beautification project, and it’s open to established garden clubs or well-organized ad hoc groups.  Congratulations to Briarmoor Manor who most recently applied for and was awarded the grant. Here’s a ‘before pic’ and the flyer recently circulated to raise the necessary matching funds.

Here’s the deal: Apply for one of three matching grants of up to $500 each. These will combine with funds raised by your organization to help pay for ‘entry-area’ landscaping at three sites in our neighborhoods. There are approximately 16 locations that qualify as entry-area (intersecting streets leading into neighborhoods, allowing access into and out of our community. Qualifying side streets feed into Briarcliff or Shallowford Roads.

Details and the application are posted on the NBCA website. Deadline for submission for 2013 is extended to May 31st.

Applicants are expected to contribute at least the maximum funds of each grant ($500), and must submit a design and plan for review. Get more information by calling Michael Gross at 404-636-7887 or mgross999@bellsouth.net.

When Neighbors get together and take leadership roles things start to happen that benefit us all.
