The City of Madison Heights Michigan established the Environmental Citizens Committee (ECC), in part, to educate the public and encourage citizen participation in programs and projects to improve the environment. Building on that goal, the Bloom Project, a subcommittee of the ECC, designed this mini-grant program to educate and encourage citizen participation in planting and maintaining native gardens.
This mini-grant program aims to:
- Increase awareness of the many benefits of native plants in our community
- Provide how-to resources for establishing native plants at your home, school, or organization
- Provide funding to support establishing or growing native gardens
