Apply for the $5,000 Ford Community Green Grant in NYC

Ford Motor Company has teamed up with Green Festivals to award a $5,000 Community Green Grant in New York City this spring! The deadline to submit for the New York City Ford Community Green Grant is March 29th.

New in 2013, four selected semi-finalists will each receive $1,000 to help fuel their goodwill efforts. If you work, volunteer or know of a local deserving non-profit that is innovative and forward-thinking, be sure to submit your organization’s application for a chance to win by clicking here.

Just three quick steps to apply:

No idea is too big or too small, but to be considered, the organization must be local, innovative and a certified non-profit. Before each event, a panel from Green Festivals and Ford Motor Company will select a group of five finalists to present their proposals in the Ford Pavilion at each festival.

Festival attendees are encouraged to cast their vote for their favorite organization.  Vote online throughout the week leading up to each event and on-site at the Ford Community Green Grant Booth. Votes will be tallied and the winner will be announced on Sunday afternoon.

Local non-profit, Green City Force, took home the 2012 NYC Ford Community Green Grant. Check out their story, and how the Ford Community Green Grant helped their growth:
