Neighbor Up Grants are intended to facilitate bringing a small group of people together (50 or less). Citizens or neighborhood associations may apply for up to $575 for activities such as block parties or picnics, special event kick-off celebrations, ice cream socials, neighborhood crime prevention or other safety-related activities, trainings or other functions or gatherings that build connections between neighbors. Grants are also available to fund supplies for neighborhood cleanup or beautification projects.
To comply with State tax code/laws and to equitably supply grant funds city wide, only one (1) Neighbor Up Grant award per calendar year shall be issued to a specific neighborhood, sponsor, and/or co-sponsor.
Neighbor Up Grant applications may be submitted any time throughout the year (at least two months prior to event date), and will be awarded on activities that meet eligibility requirements on a first come, first served basis until the allocated funding is depleted.
