    The Downtown Neighborhood Association's Board of Directors announced today the recipients of this year’s community grants. They are:

    Bike Walk Savannah

    Emmaus House
    Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home Foundation

    Savannah Tree Foundation
    Thomas Park Food Pantry
    Trustees Garden Club
    Urban Hope, Inc.
    WRUU - 107.5 Savannah

    Each year, the DNA bestows grants to community organizations that have an impact on the greater downtown area, particularly those that help or enrich the residential quality of life. Each recipient goes through an application process and before the DNA Board of Directors for selection.

    The funds for the grants are raised each year through the DNA’s Savannah Holiday Tour of Homes. Members and supporters of the DNA open their homes and inns for visitors to tour and learn about architecture, home décor, and the history and culture of the South. Close to a hundred volunteers supported the day-long event held last December. The DNA sold more than 800 tickets and raised $45,000 from the event. With two-thirds going to grants, the additional $10,000 will support community initiatives that address livability issues for downtown residents.
