2021 La Porte County Master Gardener Association Community Grant
The LaPorte County Master Gardeners Association (LPCMGA) is offering community grants to be used for materials (not labor) for a gardening/horticultural-related volunteer project.
Awards are not to exceed $300 each. The number of grants will be up to the LPCMGA and will be based upon monies available and eligible grant applications received. All requests for community grants must be made in writing on the Community Grant Application form below.
Individuals or groups within LaPorte County are eligible to apply for a grant. This includes, but is not limited to, public and private school teachers, Sunday School teachers, Boys and Girls Club Leaders, 4-H Clubs, community organizations, and volunteer individuals. However, we do not fund Homeowners Association (HOA) projects or individual privately owned property.
Only one application may be submitted per project. A total of two projects per organization may be submitted for consideration.
The application form is to be completed in its entirety. Typing is preferred but not required; however, if writing is illegible, the application will not be considered. Please use black ink. The essay questions may be answered on a separate sheet of paper that is attached to the application. The applicant must write his/her name in the upper right corner of any attached page.
Money will be available to grant winners by May 31st of that year. In the event that funds are unavailable or there is no qualified applicant, the LPCMGA will not award a community grant for that year.
Any grant recipient must be willing to allow the LPCMGA to publicize the grant award in local media outlets as well as in Master Gardener publications.
Decisions of the LPCMGA are final.
