The Park Place – Underhill Avenue Block Association has traditionally made annual grants to organizations and projects in the local community which serve the population of Prospect Heights. Such grants are made if PPUABA has funds available above and beyond what is needed for its annual budget.

UPDATES
At our January 17, 2024 meeting, our Treasurer recommended and attendees approved a 2024 grant budget of $2,500. The window for submission of 2024 grant applications is now open and will close as of the commencement of our February monthly meeting on Feb 21, 2024. A Grants Committee will be appointed at the February meeting and will evaluate the submitted Requests For Grant. At the March 20, 2024 meeting the Grants Committee will make recommendations to the membership as to which grant applications should be approved and for which amounts. See the PPUABA Grant Policy below for a full explanation of the process.

  1. determining the available budget, if any, for grants
  2. members to nominate organizations or projects to receive grants
  3. evaluating grant applications
  4. approving grant applications
  5. distributing funds
