Here are a couple of suggestions:

- Do an internet search of community development grants available for your city/county/state. Often the states have block grants that let them support this kind of activity.

- Check out this article about grants for nonprofits. It will give you some good tips about how to go about finding government as well as private and foundation grants.

- Take a look at the tomsofmaine website and their program called "50 states for good." They support programs that "do good in their communities" and in 2015 they provided $20,000 to grassrotts nonprofits in each state in the U.S. Their 2016 program isn't until the fall but that gives you plenty of time to put together an application. Online nominations will probably be open in the summer.
