Apply for the $5,000 Ford Community Green Grant at Los Angeles Green Festival

Ford Motor Company and Green Festivals are teaming up once again to award a $5,000 Community Green Grant to a deserving Los Angeles area non-profit organization. Four semi-finalists will be awarded $1,000 towards their good-will efforts. Go to www.fordcommunitygreengrant.com to learn more about how to apply. The deadline for all applications is September 27th.

No idea is too big or too small, but to be considered, the organization must be local, innovative and a certified non-profit. Before each event, a panel from Green Festivals and Ford Motor Company will select a group of five finalists to present their proposals in the Ford Pavilion at Los Angeles Green Festival, October 19-20 at the LA Mart.

Festival attendees are encouraged to cast their vote for their favorite organization. Vote online throughout the week leading up to the festival and on-site at the Ford Community Green Grant Booth. Votes will be tallied and the winner will be announced on Sunday afternoon.
