Applications for Marvin Lunenfeld Beautification Grants – named for Garden Walk Buffalo’s late co-founder – are due by Feb. 28, with funding awards announced in early spring. Apply online, or call 247-5004 to have an application mailed to you.
Since 2005, the initiative has helped fund more than 100 garden beautification projects across Buffalo's West Side, totaling more than $100,000, according to the release. These include community gardens, hanging flower baskets, street corner planter projects and more.
Award amounts are based on overall project cost. Projects are required to include matching funds from government, private contributions or volunteer sweat equity.
Award projects will be highlighted during Garden Walk Buffalo, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. It's scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27 and 28.
