Rio Vistas - Micro Grants Terms - River LA

Rio Vistas - Micro Grants Terms

The events should be participatory and engaging, but we’d love to see what you can dream up regarding the format and design.

River LA has a few special requests which will apply to every grant and they are as follows:

  1. River LA will send out invitations to and publicize every awarded Micro Grant.

  2. Micro Grant winners will also send out invitations and publicize their projects.

  3. Micro Grant winners will provide source material for River LA to use to help publicize awarded activations, including, but not limited to:

    • Team Head Shots

    • Team Bios

    • Blue prints/planning documents

    • Any photo/video/print collateral that we might be able to repurpose

  4. River LA requires that each awarded Micro Grant include an event check-in and that the check-in data is shared with River LA.

  5. River LA reserves the right to table at each awarded activation, which could include but is not limited to sharing River LA materials and surveying attendees.

  6. River LA reserves the right to set up banners and related signage at every awarded Micro Grant’s check-in station.

  7. River LA reserves the right to do a 5-minute introduction at the start of every awarded activation.

We encourage all events and programs to build on the special sense of place and vibrancy that exists along the LA River in Elysian Valley. Local organizations and young people are strongly encouraged to apply. A 501c3 designation is not required.

A certain number of micro-grants will be set aside for proposals that demonstrate cross-community and cross-river collaborations anchored by an Elysian Valley representative, e.g. organizations from up and down the LA River partnering with Elysian Valley groups, etc.

Events should take place between September 2016 and August 2017. Once grantees are chosen, we will schedule one grantee event/program(s) per month. Marketing and technical assistance will also be provided as needed.

We hope to learn what about the LA River is exciting to you, as well as whether there are additional data we might track or activations we might promote to keep you coming back.

Applications will be approved on a rolling basis until 12 noon PDT on August 10th, 2016, so please makes sure to apply early.

Please email Miranda Rodriguez at with any questions.
