Applications are due by Oct. 15.
The Town of Bristol/Roger Williams University Cooperative Committee is accepting applications for grant requests from local groups and individuals leading projects to enhance civic and community life in Bristol, with particular attention to populations who may be typically underserved.
Since its launch in 2007, the Fund for Civic Activities has distributed nearly $362,500 to dozens of organizations and programs that have impacted thousands of Bristol residents. These community initiatives have focused on the arts, social services, education, the environment and more.
The committee accepts applications twice a year, and RWU will award about $12,500 in this funding cycle.
Throughout the years, the fund has awarded grants to:
• Community String Project for musical instruments and scholarships.
• Bristol Blooms for the creation and maintenance of flowers in the downtown area.
• Bristol Police Department for community outreach and safety initiatives.
• East Bay Food Pantry for weekend, summer and mobile grocery and nutrition programs.
• Town of Bristol Emergency Dialer program, providing dialers and batteries to seniors.
• Bristol Health Equity Zone for Recovery Rally celebration and diabetes prevention programs.
Town of Bristol/Roger Williams University Cooperative Committee is comprised of six representative leaders from the Town of Bristol and six representatives from RWU. The committee reviews proposals and makes recommendations for final approval to the Bristol Town Administrator and the President of Roger Williams University.
Applications for this funding cycle are due October 15. For more information and to download an application, click here.
