2016 Keep America Beautiful/Anheuser-Busch Community Restoration Grants
Application Deadline: July 6, 2016
Each year an extraordinary number of wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods devastate communities across America. After first-responders leave, KAB Affiliates remain long term in the community to re-establish their neighbors' sense of normalcy and spirit. The KAB - Anheuser-Busch Community Restoration Grant Program will enable and empower Affiliates to repair, replant, and restore their community's public areas that have been damaged or completely destroyed by natural disasters.
The grant program will award four $10,000 grants to KAB Affiliates for high impact public community property restoration or land damaged/destroyed by natural disasters. Projects should strengthen the development and implementation of restoration activities within communities, and generate long-term local and regional partnerships to support community-based restoration efforts.
Some examples of eligible projects are, but not limited to:
◦Community/public space (i.e. park, basketball court) clean-up, construction, restoration/renovation
◦Landscaping - tree plantings/flower, shrub or bulb plantings
◦Community building façade/roofing repairs (i.e. youth center, recreation hall)
Upon completion of the projects, affiliates will be required to report:
•Project Conclusion & Summary
•Goals and Intended Outcomes Met
•Results: Metrics and Anecdotal Information (i.e. was there any “leave behind” signage/plaque acknowledging project)
•Media and Social Media Outreach
• Deadline to apply is July 6, 2016
• All applicants/recipients will be notified by July 27, 2016
• KAB certified affiliates must be in good standing to apply
