Background

The Neighborhood Mow & Maintenance Program supports innovative community groups and organizations in fundraising efforts through mowing and maintaining vacant properties owned by the Calhoun County Land Bank Authority (CCLBA). This program provides opportunities for groups to earn funds for neighborhood organizations, youth group activities, field trips, mission trips, outreach programs and other events or community efforts. The program provides excellent exposure for the purpose of publicizing your group and its partnership with the community.

Process

The 2024 deadline to apply is March 25, 2024!

An eligible group is defined as an established entity based in Calhoun County with a Federal Identification on Number (IRS form W-9) and a bank account, or exists under an organization on that meets that criteria. Proof of liability insurance is required, details on this item are explained more in the application. Additionally, a signed liability release form will be required of all group participants, or by their parents/guardians, if under age 18. A group leader and co-leader (must be 18 or over) will need to submit an application.

Groups are required to provide their own equipment, tools, fuel and supplies. For most properties, lawn mowers and weed trimmers will be sufficient, although rakes, yard waste bags, and shovels would be handy.
