Neighborhood Council/Town Council

Money Available for Worthy Causes

The Venice Neighborhood Council is pleased to announce that due to a change in the funding guidelines imposed by the City, we have additional money to spend this year for Community Improvement Projects. We are therefore inviting community organizations and individuals to apply for a second round of Community Improvement Projects, which will be funded to a maximum of $3,000.

Applications are now available at  and also the Vera Davis Center and the Venice Public Library. Applications must be postmarked no later than October 3 in order to be considered.  Projects may begin after Feb 1, 2012 and must be completed before April 15, 2012.  Current recipients of Community Improvement funding are NOT eligible to apply during this cycle. All events must be FREE and open to the public.

Put your creative thinking caps on now.  Previous year’s projects have included gardens, murals, a sewing class, and concerts. For more information, contact
