The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League raises tens of thousands of dollars through its Fall Home Tour, which this year is Oct. 17-18.
The league first gives grants to member neighborhoods, which are used for things like beautification, sidewalk repair, police patrol and support of neighborhood schools.
For the past few years, the league has raised enough money to also offer grants to neighborhood nonprofits.
Here are this year’s grant recipients:2000 Roses Foundation, for transportation
Friends of Oak Cliff Parks and Texas Garden Clubs Inc. for improvements to Kiest Park
Hampton-Illinois Library Friends for early literacy support
The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts and Turner House for new draperies and carport restoration
TeCo Theatrical Productions for a lighting upgrade
The Well Community for its Community Life Center
The Fort Worth Avenue Development Group for Western Heights Cemetery maintenance and a public art project
