SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Downtown Neighborhood Association of Savannah announced the community grant recipients for 2017 on Tuesday evening.

This happened during the organization's annual meeting and spring picnic at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum.

The grant money comes from the Holiday Tour of Homes event held each year.

A few of the organizations awarded Tuesday include Urban Hope, Savannah Bicycle Campaign and the Frank Callen Boys and Girls Club.

"Every year, we get a lot of people that apply for the grants and we're happy to have many, many people that we can actually give the grants to," said Downtown Neighborhood Association President Melinda Allen.
