The City of Indianapolis awards $10,000 grant to the Warfleigh Neighborhood Association!

The City of Indianapolis recently announced recipients of the Neighborhood Grant Program. We are delighted to share that the Warfleigh Neighborhood Association (WNA) won a $10,000 grant for a project focused on neighborhood spaces and beautification.

Your WNA, championed by WNA board member Tammy Sajdyk, submitted  a proposal for a  grant to cover the production and installation of Warfleigh Neighborhood signage which will brand our neighborhood as Warfleigh – Between the Waters. We plan to install 5 or 6  signs at key neighborhood entry points. These signs will help identify Warfleigh to neighboring organizations and governmental agencies. We believe the WNA signage will help build a safer neighborhood, increase opportunities for infrastructure improvement, and help build pride in the neighborhood.

The grant program is part of the Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center and the effort was made possible through funding from federal American Rescue Plan Act dollars passed by the City-County Council.

This December, the WNA may be eligible to submit for the second tier of funding which could help address other challenges. If any neighbors have  experience with fundraising and grant writing, please contact Tammy at tsajdyk@iu.edu  We need people to join our committees to help change happen!
