The Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) wants more volunteers participating in graffiti removal and prevention. To get neighbors involved, they are offering $7,400 in grant money. The application deadline is February 24, so if you want it you better get busy.

From the City’s page on the opportunity:

The goal of the program is to support community-driven improvement projects and community building opportunities with an emphasis on graffiti prevention, graffiti abatement and/or addressing locations chronically tagged with graffiti. Many projects may focus on community murals (development, implementation, repair), but the funds are also intended to be available for a broader range of improvement projects that prevent or abate graffiti and support ONI’s goals.”

I don’t know how open they are to granting individuals, but it seems like a good chance for a variety of neighborhood improvement projects. I have a couple of ideas myself…

  1. Hey I am so glad I found your website, I really found you by accident, while
    I was searching on Yahoo for something else, Regardless I am here now and
    would just like to say cheers for a tremendous post and a all round entertaining blog (I
    also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read
    it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added
    your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the
    excellent jo.

  2. Due to the fact that nitro remote control cars run on a
    fuel called nitromethane, the by product or exhaust
    leaves an unburned oil residue on the chassis which must be cleaned on a regular
    basis. Now they make nitro cars that are capable of 50+ miles
    per hour, and have real, honest-to-goodness engines in them.
    Starting up the world’s most advanced toy is something nott to be
    taken lightly.

  3. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded
    thjs onto a coworker who haas been doing a little research on this.

    And he actually bought me dinner simply because
