Dharma's Council Newsletter, February 3rd, 2024

Neighbors,

 

City Council meets on Monday, February 5th. Here are some updates before my preview of our agenda.

Seeking Reviewers for New Washtenaw County Human Services Partnership Grant

Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED) is recruiting community reviewers to review grant proposals for the 2024 mini grant funding round via the New Human Services Partnership. Your input will help shape the trajectory of how the New Human Service Partnership funds are invested. Previous experience reviewing grant applications, serving on a review panel/board, or participating in a focus group is desired, but not a requirement.   


Apply to be a reviewer at bit.ly/oced-mini24. Applications will close Monday, February 12th.


Upcoming Bicentennial Events

I hope you're all keeping in eye on upcoming Ann Arbor Bicentennial Events! Tomorrow, February 4th, from 2 to 3:30pm, the Ann Arbor District Library is hosting a documentary film screening of "There Goes the Neighborhood: The Closing of Jones School." From the description: "In 1965, the Board of Education closed the majority-Black school. Ann Arbor joined a nationwide trend of school desegregation during the Civil Rights Era. But for these young students, the loss of a neighborhood school foreshadowed changes to their close-knit community. Gentrification came to Ann Arbor on the heels of desegregation."

 

This documentary will be available to watch on demand at the Library's annarbor200.org site following this premiere.
