“After over a year of COVID-19, many of us missed gathering with family, friends and neighbors,” Ms. Connolly said. “This latest funding cycle aims to kickstart the local events that are so valuable to our community and its vitality.
“We truly are ‘Better Together,’ and now that vaccinations are widely available, we want to encourage folks to come together, support our nonprofits and enjoy all that our community has to offer.”
Events must take place within one year of submission and meet all applicable health guidance and guidelines. Nonprofit organizations, churches and private schools are eligible to apply.
