Interested in helping people in your community? Then join the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6C Grants Committee for their 2018 Grants Seminar from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, April 21 at the Anthology Building (625 H St. NE).
The event brings together residents, business owners, students, and community leaders to identify issues that face our neighborhoods, discuss possible solutions and ways to start a non-profit, and learn about grant opportunities.
The seminar is free and open to the public. It kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with remarks from Councilmembers Charles Allen (Ward 6-D) and Elissa Silverman (At Large-I) over coffee and pastries. Presentations will include information on grant applications, round tables on the founding of a non-profit and information on how to leverage grant funds.
