Know Your Neighbor Grant - Closed for the rest of 2018

$100 grocery grants are reserved for neighbors in the initial steps of trying to meet their neighbors & organize their neighborhood group.  Arvada residents may use these grants for block parties, event kick-offs, neighborhood clean-ups, ice cream socials, or other functions that build connections between neighbors. 

A limited number of grants are also reserved for Neighbors Connected groups every year.

If you received a 2018 Know Your Neighbor grant, fill out the Evaluation form online.

Neighborhood Planning Grant

Grants up to $250 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. You can use this funding to identify goals, priorities, and potential projects for your neighborhood group.

Neighborhood Improvement Grant

Neighborhood Improvement Grants will be available only to neighborhoods enrolled in our Neighbors Connected Program. These grants are up to $3000 for a neighborhood improvement project, program, or event which aids the neighborhood and brings people together. We are doubling the number of awards on our largest grant to encourage neighborhood groups to dream big for their communities!

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.

We are accepting applications from March 20, 2018 - April 20, 2018.  All grant recipients will be notified in May 2018.
