$3000 Neighborhood Improvement Grant (Applications Closed)

Continuing with Arvada’s vision of being a strong, resilient community of neighborhoods, the City invites neighborhood groups to submit grant proposals for the 2021 Neighborhood Improvement Grant. The most successful projects will establish central gathering places for neighbors to get to know each other; build neighborhood identity by bringing positive, permanent assets into the neighborhood for gathering; offer venues for training about community health, emergency preparedness, or volunteerism; and enhance community resilience by strengthening connections between neighbors.

What types of projects are eligible for funding? Here are a few ideas!

  • Neighborhood benches or a communal place to sit.
  • A community message board or shared book library.
  • A “Resilience Hub” with a cache of emergency supplies and an emergency plan.
  • A neighborhood-grown fruit tree orchard. **Drought-dependent**
  • Creative placemaking, such as neighborhood-commissioned “art wraps” on traffic control cabinets or a sculpture in a park.

Grant Restrictions:

  • Grants are not allowed for deferred maintenance.
  • Grants must provide a public benefit and be publicly accessible.
  • Groups may not be awarded in consecutive years.
