Community Grant Program

To improve community engagement and neighborhood identity, the City has developed two community grant programs intended to enhance and foster neighborhood collaboration. These programs are intended to reduce code violations and spur additional private investment within the neighborhood through the support of resident-led improvement projects and engagement opportunities. Both programs continue to pursue the City’s goal to increase communication among neighbors, build neighborhood identity and civic pride, and to increase opportunities to bring neighborhoods together. All of this is consistent with the City’s vision and “Signature Centennial” Key Performance Area.

Getting Ready for 2023!

Neighborhood Services will be hosting two grant proposal preparation meetings in February to assist communities in preparing their proposals for the Large Community Improvement Grants. The Grant Proposal Prep meetings will be held on Thursday, February 16 and Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Eagle Street building.
