kabgrants The following note was forwarded along from Travis Travis County Commissioner Sarah Eckhardt’s office:

Throughout the year KAB works with neighborhood beautification grant winners and many more community groups to improve public space throughout Austin. Highlights from some of these inspiring projects can be viewed at www.keepaustinbeautiful.org/nbg

It’s hard to believe, but it is Neighborhood Beautification Grant time again and time to start bringing groups’ dreams to life.  Each year neighborhood associations, scouts/troops, and schools are invited to apply for a KAB grant to improve their community. This year our deadline is 5pm on July 10th and we anticipate a wide variety of projects. While KAB would love to fund all of the projects only a select few will be granted funds to complete their project this year, and we need your assistance to make this happen!

Keep Austin Beautiful would like to invite you to help review these applications, and we hope that you will be able to join us as a judge for the 2009 KAB Neighborhood Beautification Grants.

Your expertise working with the city, landscape and restoration projects, and/or community groups is a big resource in the decision making process.
As in previous years, you will be provided a notebook containing the grant applications (the week of July 13th-17th) for your review and then we will
meet as a group (for approximately 2 hours) to make the final grantee selections.

I’ve created a poll to determine which date will fit into most of our judges’ schedules, and as soon as I’ve heard from the majority of judges,
we’ll finalize a date.  Please visit: http://www.doodle.com/igczq3fufigb92db to share your availability.

Thank you for being a part of this rewarding program, and I’ll look forwardto hearing from you!
