Norristown Weed & Seed was from the state sponsored program that was cut in 2011. That funding will pay for three programs – a parent-oriented support program, a police and youth forum and a capacity-building program for Weed & Seed committee members – and a site coordinator position.
Respondents may submit proposals through April 30. Money awarded from the grant must be spent by Dec. 31, 2012.
Questions about the RFP should be directed to Norristown Weed & Seed Steering Committee Chair Rochelle Culbreath at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Norristown Municipal Council Member Marlon Milner at 610-731-7439.
