BRISTOL, R.I. 鈥 The Town of Bristol/Roger Williams University Cooperative Committee is accepting applications for grant requests from local groups and individuals leading projects to enhance civic and community life in Bristol, with particular attention to populations who may be typically underserved.

Since its launch in 2007, the Fund for Civic Activities has distributed $380,500 to fund 236 projects that have impacted thousands of Bristol residents. These community initiatives have focused on the arts, social services, education, the environment and more.

Throughout the years, the fund has awarded grants to:

  • Community String Project for musical instruments and scholarships.

  • Bristol Police Department for community outreach and safety initiatives.
  • East Bay Food Pantry for weekend, summer and mobile grocery and nutrition programs.
  • Town of Bristol Emergency Dialer program, providing dialers and batteries to seniors.
