Neighborhood Grant

Sometimes a little change makes a big difference. When your neighborhood needs a small project, consider applying for a neighborhood project matching grant.

The Neighborhood Project Matching Grant Program provides matching grants, of up to $3,000, to neighborhood groups interested in building strong relationships around a community-driven beautification project and supports the City’s strategic focus on Community Pride. Successful projects will:

  • result in an enhancement to the neighborhood’s identity
  • enlist community participation and foster a sense of community pride
  • be visible to the general public
  • be a project that can be permitted by City regulations
The program requires a match for requested funds which can be met with cash, in-kind donations and/or volunteer hours. Grant applications are reviewed by a 3-person staff committee and are awarded based on how closely they align to the City’s Strategic Plan focus areas of Public Safety, Community Pride and Sustainability.
