State Farm will again award grant money to neighborhood improvement projects nationwide, according to a press release.
State Farm will award 100 grants worth $25,000 each — versus 40 grants in previous years — to nonprofit organizations to help fund neighborhood improvement projects, per the release. The number of cause submissions for the grants will double from previous years to 4,000, the release said.
The release said that starting Feb. 16 at 11 a.m. Mountain Time, anyone over 18 years of age can submit their project online at neighborhoodassist.com. Submission guidelines can also be found there. Submissions will be taken until 4,000 of them are counted and will be narrowed down to 200, per the release.
From there, voters will return to that website between April 27 and May 6 — with the chance to cast up to 10 votes per day, every day for those 10 days — to decide the top 100 that’ll win grants, per the release. The top 100 will be announced June 7 on the website, the release said.
The program started in 2012, per the release.
