NEGEF’s Seed & Grow grant programs are available to help launch and sustain projects like The Resilience Hub's permablitzes. Funds can be used for materials and tools to initiate a blitz. As mentioned in the video, funds can also go towards a coordinator stipend (especially for more established projects that are seeing increased need for coordination) or outreach materials for events, etc.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need some feedback on your project (ideas). We’re here to help and can connect you with other groups and resources!
