Recap: May 2024 Coalition Meeting

The Community Active Living Coalition gathered at the Carla Madison Recreation Center on May 8, 2024, with those joining online via Zoom as well. The meeting was a CALC Micro-Grant Program workshop - a review of the criteria, rubric, application, and reflection portions of the Micro-Grant Program.

After introductions and an overview of the Micro-Grant Program, gerald hamel of Community Outreach Service Center, who is a seasoned Micro-Grantee, shared the experience of creating ideas for Micro-Grant projects and sharing the program with your community networks to build capacity amongst Denver neighbors. Community Connector, Christian Steward, then shared about the Micro-Grant Application and eventual Reflection process, answering questions from the Coalition throughout.

With the rest of the meeting time, participants were able to brainstorm ideas for projects together and begin drafting their applications with CALC Grant Officers working alongside them. As a result, there were five new Micro-Grant applications submitted during the CALC May meeting!
