Grants can fund a range of beautification projects by supplementing other funds including cash resources from the neighborhood group generated through fund-raising and pledges, volunteer labor, or donations in the form of materials and/or services. Projects should give neighborhood-based organizations incentive to raise funds, build partnerships with businesses, and cultivate the spirit of volunteerism and community support needed to complete a project.
Grants are not allowed for deferred maintenance
Grants must provide a public benefit and be on public property
Grants will only be awarded to neighborhood-based organizations within city limits
