The nonprofit formerly known as the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League donated $40,000 to thirteen neighborhood associations Monday night. The organization raises most of its annual grant funds through its fall home tour.

The grants include:

sidewalk repair programs, 

murals by Chris Bingham at Jefferson and Hampton and in Moss Park,

improvements to the Kessler Steps,

maintenance and enhancements to public spaces, including Stone Park in Kings Highway,

projects to support local schools, including a grant to purchase school uniforms for students that need help,

support of National Night Out events,

curb address painting and

help with neighborhood association communications, such as newsletter printing and postage.

The recently reorganized Kimball Square Neighborhood Association received its first grant from Heritage Oak Cliff, $500 for neighborhood communication costs.
