Proceeds from the Mon Valley-Opoly Paint and Sip will go towards Mon Valley Alliance Foundation’s (MVAF) Community Development Fund that is implementing a mini-grant program for local individuals and businesses. MVAF will be awarding five separate $250 grants until the end of 2018 under a rolling application system. The first mini-grant applications are due by July 31st at no later than 2 p.m.
Potential applicants may include organizations such as educational institutions and schools, religious organizations, municipal organizations, parks and recreation and other groups whose main purpose is to benefit quality of life in the Mon Valley. The areas of focus within the mini-grant program include parks and recreation, arts and culture, children, youth and elderly, health and fitness and community improvement.
As support increases for the Community Development Fund, more mini-grants can be awarded next year.
