Run a non-profit organization? Now is your chance to learn how to secure capital funding for the upcoming year.

As part of his ongoing commitment to increasing transparency in the city’s budget funding process, Councilman David Greenfield is inviting all non-profit organizations that serve his council district to attend his fifth annual budget workshop.

The workshop will teach organizations about New York City’s application process for discretionary funding and answer any questions representatives may have. The meeting will ensure that each group has a fair and equal chance to submit its application to the city, and will help Greenfield learn more about the work the groups do on behalf of the residents of Borough Park, Midwood, and Bensonhurst.

The meeting will be held this Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 7:15pm at Councilman Greenfield’s district office located at 4424 16th Avenue in Borough Park.

“I am very proud that in less than five years in office, I have brought back over ten million dollars to outstanding community groups. The way we do it is simple – you attend the meeting and get all the information and consideration you need. By doing this, we have opened up the process to many new groups that have never received funding before,” said Greenfield.

When first running for office five years ago, Greenfield pledged to make the budget process more transparent and easy to maneuver. To fulfill that promise, Greenfield has held his annual budget workshop each year since taking office in order to open up the process to the public.

Only representatives from non-profits that have been designated as a 501(c)(3) by the IRS may attend this meeting. In order to ensure fairness, any group that wishes to receive funding must attend this meeting and RSVP by calling (718) 853-2704 or e-mailing
