Centennial Supports Neighborhood Gatherings Through Grants & Movie Kit

Neighborhood Engagement Grants

The City of Centennial is accepting applications for the annual Neighborhood Engagement Grants program. The City’s Neighborhood Services division also launched a reservation system for equipment to host outdoor movie nights. Both programs are offered to strengthen Centennial neighborhoods and encourage resident connection and engagement.

Centennial residents, homeowner associations and community organizations may now reserve kits to host a movie night this summer by visiting centennialco.gov/movie. The kits include an inflatable 20-foot screen, projector, speakers and cabling and a DVD player. A $250 refundable deposit is required to reserve the kits once per year, per group, on weekends between April 28 and October 2.

The Neighborhood Engagement Grants program provides funding up to $500 for resident-led community-building events, including movie nights, block parties and other social gatherings. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted. Details and applications for neighborhood grants are available at centennialco.gov/communitygrants.

The movie kits and neighborhood grants align with the City’s vision to be a “connected community, where neighborhoods matter, education is embraced, businesses are valued, and innovation absolute.”
