Neighborhood Grant Programs

We are currently working on a new and improved Neighborhood Engagement program. Visit in early 2018 (January/February) for updates.

Know Your Neighbor Grants

These small grants are for improving neighborhood relations by facilitating people getting to know one another. Neighbors may apply for $100 grants for block parties, event kick-offs, neighborhood clean-ups, holiday celebrations or other functions that build connections between neighbors. 

Neighborhood Small Activity Grants

Neighborhood Small Activity Grants are up to $500 and can be used to organize your neighborhood through such things as a neighborhood festival or creating a communication mechanism such as a website or newsletter. Download the application under Resources.

Neighborhood Improvement Grants

Neighborhood Improvement Grants are larger grants for a neighborhood improvement or program which aids the neighborhood and brings people together. 

Some specific items pertaining to the Neighborhood Improvement Grants:

  • Grants are not allowed for deferred maintenance.
  • Grants must provide a public benefit and be publicly accessible.
  • Grants will only be awarded to organized neighborhood groups or those in the process of organizing.
