Acts of Kindness
The Office of the Mayor and South Bend’s Engagement and Economic Empowerment team invite neighbors and neighborhood groups to apply for an “Acts of Kindness” grant. These grants, which came about during the height of the covid epidemic, are designed to allow for creative projects to benefit neighbors in small, but meaningful, ways.
