Beautify or Strengthen your Neighborhood with a 2019 Grant!

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 11:23am

January 17 OPTIONAL Workshop at Central Library - 6:00 p.m.

The Neighborhood Grant Program of the City of Madison Planning Division helps neighborhoods beautify gateways, create public gathering places, or build organizational capacity and leadership skills. Since the program began in 1999, it has helped neighbors take on more than 300 projects realized with over 20,000 volunteer hours. The grant program has provided funding but it is neighbors’ ideas, determination, and pride that are behind the successful projects now part of the Madison landscape. In 2019, the City expects to award approximately $25,000 in grants.

We fund neighborhood, business and resident groups, and an array of unique and creative projects that build community, engage new and diverse communities, sustain or strengthen those already involved, and increase community and neighborhood impact on public decisions. Projects should be ready to begin within 1-3 months of receiving an award, and be free and open to all members of the public.

OPTIONAL WORKSHOP - January 17, 6:00 p.m. at the Central Library, 201 W. Mifflin St., Room 301 - brief staff presentation, Q&A, and project idea share with other neighborhood and business groups. No registration needed.
