Does your community have a special project they’ve been waiting to see become a reality this spring or summer? Are you ready to organize residents around what really matters in your neighborhood? The time is now to get your applications in for Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods small grants program.

Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods will be hosting their monthly Monday Night Interest Meeting for residents and groups interested in applying for a grassroots grant ranging from $100- $5,000.

These grants are for any neighborhood-led group or agency interested in making a change in their community using the gifts, skills, talents and drive of the residents.
