Assembly Grants

Each year, the University Apartments Assembly receives a portion of the usage fees from the community center. This money is available in October and March for resident-directed projects and purchases that directly benefit the community. Any University Apartments resident is welcome to submit a grant application and return it to the community center office. Past grants have funded the purchase of park benches near playgrounds, bike helmets for children, community center play equipment, entertainment sponsorship, and much more.
