Category name (if none of above):


1.        Summary of Request:  In the space below, briefly describe the purpose of the request, activities to be undertaken, target population —including ethnicity, gender, income level and estimated number of individuals — geographic focus and other relevant info regarding the request.



The ASNC DAWS (Director of Animal Welfare)  requests up to $1250 for medical costs incurred from the rescue of stray cats and dogs in the ASNC communities.  Just in February 2011 alone, 3 lost dogs were turned to Lacy St, and 2 sick homeless cats on the streets required procedures including sutures, steroid injections and antibiotics -- totaling over $400 which the ASNC DAWS pays from his own pocket.   Of note, the Atwater Village NC provides an annual budget to the their DAWS totaling over $2000 for similar expenses.


2.        How will the community be impacted by the proposed project and how will it benefit the neighborhood?  Rationale:  Community projects must directly benefit ASNC communities. Concerns about who & how many individuals will benefit from such projects also need consideration. Issues of  access and fairness need to be addressed (e.g. if a project is approved to plant trees on one street corner, justification should be provided as to why that street corner needs trees or clean-up versus other street corners).


All ASNC stakeholders benefits from a reduction in suffering of stray animals in their communities.  It is us, the residents of Los Angeles, that are responsible for taking care of these neighborhood cats that didn't ask to be put into this situation.


3.        How has your organization attempted to obtain donations from local businesses, citizens, and/or govÕt agencies to offset expenses for this community project?

Rationale: Community groups cannot expect all funding to be provided by ASNC but should first look for other sources, including businesses, citizens, council districts, public agencies (e.g. Cultural Affairs), and other affected neighborhood councils.


Through FAST, the ASNC DAWS have been able to obtain a $2000 grant last year from the Glide Foundation, and are pursuing a similar grant for $2500 this year.


4. In what ways will the ASNC's financial support of this project be acknowledged & publicized? Examples: ASNC sponsorship mentioned in a prominent way on outreach materials, listed on the event or sponsoring group's website as a financial supporter, and listed in printed programs and display tables.  (Note: The ASNC should be asked to provide appropriate text and design for advertising).  


All outreach flyers for ASNC DAWS will prominently display the ASNC logo and contact info, including website address.


5.        If this is for a capital improvement project, specify location and permits obtained (or in-process of obtaining).  Provide copies of permits and insurance with application.  Rationale: Capital improvement projects should be on public property, with coordination with the appropriate city agency (i.e. Street Services, Fire, Rec & Parks, etc).  Appropriate permits need to be in place, and insurance may be required depending on the nature of work that will be performed.




6.        If this is for program services (ie. after-school program, graffiti removal, etc), describe the selection process used to establish participants if for select group of individuals.  Provide number of participants.   

Rationale: If for a select group of individuals, a fair selection process should be created to establish participants. The service program needs to be provided by a legitimate non-profit/consultant. A neighborhood council or its members should not provide these services.




7.        If this is for equipment and supplies, describe specifically who will benefit and how it will be controlled.  Rationale: Equipment and supplies for either public or private organizations can only be used for the benefit of the local community.  Purchases intended for private and/or paid use are not allowed.  Must be labeled as ASNC-purchased material and properly controlled/inventoried. Cannot be turned into private property or salvaged without prior approval by Dept of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE).





8.        If this is for an event, describe the intended audience, location and entry requirements.  Rationale: Events must be open to the public.  There should not be an admission charge.  If the event is on private property, insurance may be needed.  If the event is on city property, appropriate permission/permits from city departments may be needed (i.e. street services, LAPD, R&P, etc)





9.        If this is for a sign, banner or advertisement, describe the contents.  Provide a copy of the artwork with the application.   Note: Banners, signs and advertisements must include the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood CouncilÕs name and/or logo.





10.     Other - please provide other important information necessary to better understand your organization or the specific needs of the targeted group or community that this request will serve.


DECLARATION: By checking the box below the applicant named above declares that the information provided in this form is correct. Agree


This application requires the following supporting documents be provided to ASNC before approval can be obtained.  EMAIL DOCUMENTS TO ASNCTREASURER@GMAIL.COM.  Check all boxes that apply. Copy of estimate/invoice (actual bill req'd for payment)
