$2 million dollars in Special Events and Cultural Amenities, or SECA grants will be awarded soon.
The SECA Advisory Commission made their recommendations after hearing from 91 organizations making requests for funding.
Revenue for the SECA Grant comes from one-percent of the food and beverage tax in Naperville.
Chicago based Hope For A Day was given a positive recommendation for $14,333 to make a documentary with District 203 and 204 students about suicide prevention.
Another notable request came from the Naperville Heritage Society who was allotted $5,500 to restore the headstone of Naperville’s first black resident, Sybil Dunbar.
The Heritage Society would also like to research more about her life.
City council will have a chance to look over the commission’s recommendations at their March 24 workshop.
Naperville Community Television, including Naperville News 17, is also partially funded by a SECA Grant.
