EKNA supports local initiatives through a mini-grant program. Proposals will be considered for funding at the EKNA general meetings during the months of February, April, July, and October.

Neighborhood groups and projects can apply by sending a one-page project proposal including:

  • Budget
  • Impact that EKNA funds will have on the EKNA community
  • Desired amount of funding

Proposals must be received via email ( the month prior to consideration. (For example, if you would like your proposal to be voted on at the October meeting, you would need to submit a proposal no later than September 30.) You will be invited to give a short presentation at the next membership meeting. Approval is based on membership vote and availability of funding. Funding amounts vary, but most grants are for $500 or less.  For more information on guidelines and eligibility, please email
