Richland plans session on community grants

On Jan. 28, Richland County hosts a workshop for neighborhood leaders interested in applying for community improvement grants.

The hour-long session starts at 6:30 p.m. at the county administration building, 2020 Hampton St.

Erica Hink, neighborhood coordinator, will explain what types of projects qualify for matching grants up to $1,500. Groups can match the awards with volunteer hours.

Past projects have included National Night Out events, community entrance signs, self-defense classes, newsletters, traffic signs and recreational equipment.
