ALMA Receives Additional $25,000 Matching Grant
On the heels of meeting a $25,000 challenge grant from Spring Austin Partners in 2012, ALMA has received another $25,000 challenge grant from Spring Austin Partners for 2013. We need the community’s help to meet this challenge and thus raise another $50,000 to help long-time Eastside homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure due to increasing property tax obligations.
Help us meet the match by attending the Hula Hoop-A-Thon for Eastside Tax Relief at Hot Mama’s Cafe, 2401 E. 6th. Our guest M.C. is none other than Mayor Lee Leffingwell!
