The application process for the 2019 Grants is currently under way, with applications due May 1st. All made possible by the proceeds from the Cape Ann License Plate. This year we will award $15,000.

In the last two years we have awarded $24,000 to local nonprofits and education initiatives. In 2017 Backyard Growers gratefully received $5,000 to broaden and deepen the impact of their school gardening program. The primary goal with this project was to use school gardens to increase consumption of fresh vegetables among Gloucester’s students. The program implemented hands on garden and nutrition education programs for preK-5th grade throughout the school district in collaboration with School Food Services and teachers.

By ordering a Cape Ann License Plate today at you make these grants possible and show how much you love our great Cape Ann Community .
