Planning Advisory Groups Award Funds


Strickland, Sandy, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Sandy Strickland, Times-Union staff writer

Three Northside area advisory groups have awarded about $75,000 to help fund 26 projects, including a crime-prevention drama, glasses for needy youngsters, field trips, after-school programs and a hallelujah festival.

Each of the city's six planning advisory committees annually receives $25,000 in grant funds from the city's general appropriation to the Jacksonville Children's Commission. The commission forwards the grant applications to the advisory committees for evaluation.

On the Northside, the applications were reviewed by the North, the Northwest and the Urban Core planning advisory committees with the focus on innovative ideas.

Matt Thompson, program associate for the children's commission, said there's a feast of good applications some years and, in others, a famine. This year was a moderately good one, particularly for the Northwest district, he said.

The Northwest group received almost 20 applications, which it whittled down to six through an intensive interview process, said Diane Kerr, who heads the group.

"We want to ensure the projects definitely involve the children and aren't just going to equipment," Kerr said. "We have a follow-up in the beginning, in the middle and toward the end. We are familiar with the different entities in the neighborhood and know which are good and who hasn't really done anything. I think the ones we've chosen are excellent."

THE NORTHWEST GROUP AWARDED THE FOLLOWING:

-- Duval County Council of PTAs got $1,500 to provide professional eye exams and glasses for children of financially strapped families.

-- Grace and Truth Temple of the Living God Church got $2,500 for a computer-assistance program to help prepare students for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.

-- Project Reach Foundation got $10,000 for a summer academic enrichment program.

-- Rising Stars of Tomorrow got $2,000 for a performing arts program.

-- Riverview Neighborhood Association got $1,500 to involve youths in community rallies, cleanup activities and Neighborhood Watch meetings.

-- Washington Heights Estates Neighborhood Association got $2,500 to involve youths in neighborhood beautification, career exploration and field trips.

THE NORTH GROUP AWARDED THE FOLLOWING:

-- Black Hammock Island Civic Association got $5,000 to buy computers, supplies and other materials for children and help with a summer picnic.

-- Florida Community College Foundation got $6,000 to conduct a summer camp providing instruction in stage makeup, costumes, dance, acting and vocal performance. …
