myNKY Nano Grant Program Coming to Taylor Mill
$250 grants are given to make residents’ creative place-making ideas happen
(August 1, 2017) TAYLOR MILL, KY – In support of the myNKY vision to promote vibrant communities, The Catalytic Fund and The Center for Great Neighborhoods (The Center) are bringing the myNKY Nano Grant program to the city of Taylor Mill. Up to three $250 grants will be awarded to people who live or work in Taylor Mill and have creative ideas to bring their community together.
The purpose of the Nano Grant program is to support creative place-making ideas created by local residents, students or workers that bring Northern Kentuckians together, build a sense of community, celebrate our differences and foster community pride.
In 2016, the Nano Grants program was offered in Dayton, Florence and Pendleton County, resulting in creative events like the Stories of Dayton and Ewe-nique Art Hop and interesting ideas such as the Fowl Weather sidewalk painting project, the Imagine This! student engagement project and a video contest to promote Dayton.
Jill Bailey, City Administrative Officer of Taylor Mill, is excited about the possibilities for creative projects in her community and says, “I think this will inspire our residents to come up with some really interesting ideas.”
The Catalytic Fund and The Center have committed to provide three $250 grants to Taylor Mill this year.
An informational session about the grants and the application process will be held on Thurs. August 17 at 6:00 pm at the City Building Community Room at 5225 Taylor Mill Rd., Taylor Mill, KY. Applications will be open from August 1-31. For more information, please visit www.myNKYVibrancyGrants.org .
