Downtown Neighborhood Association
recognized the 2022 Community Grant Award Recipients at the Annual Spring Picnic
Funds Raised by the DNA’s Holiday Tour of Homes in 2021 Awarded to Community Groups
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 application goes through a review process overseen by the DNA Board of Directors which makes the selections.
The funds for the grants are raised each year through the DNA’s Holiday Tour of Homes and Inns. 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. More than a hundred DNA volunteers supporte the day-long event that is held in early December.
Providing food and shelter for the needy, sponsoring educational activities for children, addressing domestic violence issues, and supporting youth counseling are some of the activities that the DNA supports with its Community Partner Grant Program.
