The AMP the GOOD grant program, which launched in 2018, has funded more than 40 neighborhood-based projects that strengthen the health, safety and economy of the Boston Square and Oakdale neighborhoods.
Past projects include the development of a community garden, a small park that provides opportunities for fellowship in the neighborhood, a community clean-up and after school programming for neighborhood children.
Grant applicants can apply for up to $1,000 for project ideas that support collaborative projects intended to enhance the vibrancy and vitality of the community while honoring neighborhood culture, traditions and values.
