GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The city of Grand Rapids has given funds to several local organizations for community projects and events.

The city gave a total of $78,000 to 25 different projects throughout the city through the Neighborhood Match Fund program. Each project is “designed to bring community together and promote a deeper sense of belonging among neighbors,” the city said in a Thursday release.

Projects include the Boston Square Fair, which will be put on by the Boston Square Neighborhood Association on July 8, and Grady’s Garden at Stocking Elementary, a community garden recently planted at Stocking Elementary School.
