Grant Applications Accepted until June 12

Money raised from the Tremont Trek Home Tour goes toward funding neighborhood improvement grants. Each year the Tremont Trek Home Tour awards grants to the people, causes & organizations working to improve the quality of life for residents, visitors and businesses in our neighborhood. The majority of the monies given out (55%) each year are designated for transformational projects that will have a long-term impact on the community and the remainder (45%) to provide support to on-going programs & events and smaller initiatives.

More than $100,000 has been given out since Trek started in 2002 including more than $13,000 in grants given out last year to: Arts in August ($2,000), Tremont Arts & Cultural Festival ($2,500), monies to repair a garden shed and provide seed money for tools and insect hotels for the W. 14th Street Garden ($745); and Cleveland MetroParks ($7,850) to build, install & maintain a info kiosk/water station at the Towpath trailhead near University Road which will be installed after the Innerbelt Bridge construction is complete this fall.
