Innovative community micro grants available to fight graffiti

Does your organization have a creative idea for preventing and cleaning up graffiti? If so, the City of Minneapolis wants to help fund it.

Micro grants of up to $10,000 per project are being made available to communities and community-based organizations that target graffiti in innovative ways. Totaling $75,000, these micro grants are intended to act as seed money for manageable projects that will eventually lead to larger, more ambitious initiatives.
