Do you have an idea that will help your neighbors improve your neighborhood? The City of Arvada is beginning the third year of its neighborhood grant program, as one of the City Council’s top goals to strengthen and revitalize the City’s neighborhoods. Arvada residents are encouraged to apply.

Neighborhood Improvement Grants are considered for neighborhood projects that may include physical improvements, programs, or activities, these grants may be up to $10,000 each. Qualifying projects must include neighbors working together and a match by neighbors of at least 25% of project cost, with 15% of the match being provided in the form of donated labor.  Neighborhood Improvement Grant applicants are required to schedule a pre-application conference before submitting their final application. Neighborhood Improvement Grant applications are due on or before March 15, 2013.  The City anticipates that grants will be awarded to grant recipients by early May 2013.

These meetings cover the same material, so interested persons only need to attend one. 2013 grant application forms and additional information are available here.
