|2010 GW Beautification Funding Awards|
Garden Walk Beautification Grants have helped to fund 63 garden beautification projects for a total of more than $26,000 in last seven years.
"Garden Walk Buffalo is very pleased to once again partner with block club and neighborhood groups who are working on various community garden and beautification projects that help to provide a catalyst for redevelopment in our neighborhoods," said Beautification Grant committee chair, and GWB treasurer, Jeffrey Tooke. "Projects like these, performed by regular residents in the neighborhoods, are contributing to the rebirth of our urban neighborhoods in the City of Buffalo."
Award amounts are based on the overall project cost and the eligible
projects were required to include matching funds from government,
private contributions or volunteer sweat equity. These award projects
will be highlighted during this year's Garden Walk.
