Microgrant program takes root
Tuesday, September 7, 2021 by Tai Moses
The city of Austin sensibly combines Arbor Day and Monarch Appreciation Day into a two-week festival of nature dubbed Roots & Wings, offering the community a chance to learn all about pollinators and other wild creatures and the native trees and plants that support them. This year, Roots & Wings, which spans Oct. 24-Nov. 6, is launching a new, big-tent initiative offering microgrants of up to $1,500 in an effort to give more nonprofits and educational organizations an opportunity to participate in the festival and “host their own goal-aligned events.” The deadline to apply for a microgrant is Sept. 13.
