General Information

Neighborhood Grants are awarded by the Council Neighborhoods Committee (CNC) each year in June and new applications are available on the website in the Spring. The Neighborhood Grant Program was established to maintain and improve neighborhoods by supporting activities that bring neighbors together and encourage participation. The grants provide financial support to groups trying to form new neighborhood associations. For existing associations, the grants provide a stable source of funding for ongoing neighborhood events that promote a sense of community and opportunities to know your neighbors.


Program Information

Neighborhood Grants may be awarded up to the maximum outlined in the Table 1 below based on the number of households covered by the neighborhood group. Groups applying for a neighborhood grant for the first time are eligible for a $100 bonus.  All grant funds must be used throughout a fiscal year between July 1 and June 30, and there is no carryover of funds that are not used within this timeframe.
