In keeping with Shaw Neighborhood Improvement Association’s (SNIA) mission to “improve and maintain the quality of life of all Shaw residents,” we offer the Shaw Helping Hands Grant program to assist those who share that vision and are taking an active part in making it a reality. Helping Hands grants are made possible by proceeds from the Historic Shaw Art Fair.

Specifically, SNIA invites proposals requesting up to $2,000 to benefit the quality of life of Shaw residents. Funding is available for not-for-profit entities or a group of individual residents. Past recipients of the grant have addressed artistic, educational, environmental, and social needs in the neighborhood. Depending on requests, we anticipate funding five to six proposals.

Proposals are due to SNIA by May 31, 2016 by 5pm.
