RE: county/city funding

The Knox Parks Foundation frequently gets a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the city of Hartford.  It is typically in the $30-35,000 range.  It is a competitive and highly political process, so sometimes it doesn’t happen.  The funding is for garden development and improvement, so at least 2/3 of the money is for hard costs of physical improvements to gardens.  We pick up some staffing costs on the assumption that some staffing is necessary to get improvements done.  This money is about 5% or our organization’s operating budget.  Because of the way we are organized, it is a little difficult to say how it relates to the community gardening aspect of our operation.  A rough estimate is that it is about 1/3 of community gardening costs.

I think I've asked a question similar to this before, but I'll give it a try again, because I didn't get response before...

I am trying to find non-profit or government community gardening organizations who receive regular, annual funding from a city or county government agency. If this is the case with your org, please tell me! I really want to hear what percentage of your annual operating budget comes from that source... I'm trying to show a local government agency that their peers regularly contribute to-- or even sponsor-- community garden orgs/programs... and to what extent.

Please, share!
