This a a 50 unit low income senior property.  It has a diverse population and many prefer to grow their vegetables, but are limited to where and how much they can plant.  We are thinking about putting in a community garden for use by any resident.  Since this is a non-profit, I was inquiring about some grant money to install this garden. I am inquiring about a grant for installing a community garden for my low income senior in a Section 8/Elderly property.

First please be aware that we are an information site only -- we are not connected with the government nor do we have ffunds to award ourselves. We provide a forum where people looking for grants can get information and leads from others.

That said, If you or the senior property  in question is an officially designated  501(c)3 you may have some opportunities for getting a grant for your community garden. I would recommend you start by checking out your state's website and see if there are grants available for projects like this which help to build community. 

Also take a look ata this article about Grants for Nonprofits. It's a useful summary of the grants available from the government as well as from some private companies and foundations. Hope this works out for you, the garden sounds like a wonderful idea.
