Slavic Village is often referred to as community of neighborhoods from Forest City to St. Hyacinth to Mill Creek. Many of these areas have tight knit blocks and streets that meet regularly. Contact Susan Gordon to learn more about our neighborhood block clubs Susang@slavicvillage.org, (216) 429-1182 X132.
Every other month, SVD hosts a community dinner and discussion. The goal is to connect residents, businesses and civic leaders to solve neighborhood level issues through methods developed by Neighborhood Connections. The event changes locations to different venues in the neighborhood. FREE to attend and bring a neighbor!
Friends of Slavic Village Grant
We encourage groups The FOSV Mini Grant program was created by a generous donation by the Third Federal Foundation to carry out the mission of the Friends of Slavic Village. Residents and groups working to enhance the quality of life and build community in Broadway Slavic Village are eligible to apply for the grant.
Grant requests are reviewed quarterly by the committee. In order to be reviewed grants must be submitted by March 25th, June 25th, September 25th or December 30th; if one of those dates falls on a weekend they must be submitted by the following Monday. Grants will be reviewed the following month by committee members after which applicants will be notified of their decision.
If you are awarded the grant, click here to download the final grant report document which is to be submitted 15 days after completion of the project.
The committee looks for projects that allow people to work together and have an immediate, positive impact on Broadway Slavic Village. The project should be a team effort that involves people from as many backgrounds as possible building and strengthening relationships within the neighborhood. Projects should also build on assets that are already present in the community.
