We are currently working on a new and improved Neighborhood Engagement program. Visit arvada.org/neighborhoods 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.
