I normally don’t post things like this. But the deadline is fast-approaching and I’m sure there’s someone out there who is deserving of this grant. Any ideas?

  1. The Community of Delano, California recently established a 9 soccer fields in the poorest area of town. The 9 field is actually one large field that can host 9 games. In the summer time the fields were packed daily but without lights, the fields will have limited use in the winter time. I would like to apply for a grant to help this city get funding for lights. How can I do this?
    Thank you,
    Avtar

  2. Please send me information about the grants. We are renovating a historical building in our small rural town that will house a grocery store. We lost our grocery store two years ago and it has been a hardship for the people in our community.
    Thanks
