IPL Project GreenSpace: Want to transform an under-used or vacant places into beautiful, green public space?
Apply for an IPL Project GreenSpace grant.
Projects can be pocket parks, gateways, urban gardens, greenspace beautification:  connecting people to nature, creating vibrant places rooted in community and building lasting value by working together. Committed to creating vibrant places and communities, IPL Project GreenSpace is a grassroots effort that transforms vacant lots and underused spaces into natural, beautiful, and functional pocket parks and greenspaces for neighborhoods. KIB has also partnered with Arts Council of Indianapolis to bring art to these spaces in the form of benches, murals, and centerpieces. Applications for IPL Project GreenSpace are being accepted until July 10, 2015 for spring 2016 community greening projects.

Community Forestry: Want to tree-up your neighborhood with a community tree planting?
Apply for a Community Forestry planting.
KIB’s Community Forestry initiative has helped to plant more than 40,000 trees in Indianapolis since the program’s announcement. An urban forestry effort to strategically plant 100,000 trees throughout Marion County, this program helps to reduce crime, decrease pollution, and raise property value throughout our city, all by planting trees. Applications for Community Forestry tree plantings are being accepted until July 10, 2015 for spring 2016 plantings.
