Improve Your Neighborhood with the Grant Assistance Partnership
Applications for the Grant Assistance Partnership (GAP) grant will be available April 16 and will be shared with eligible Special Emphasis neighborhoods.
Through the program, Special Emphasis neighborhood associations may be awarded up to $2,500 to address one or more of the following goal areas of neighborhood development: landlord/tenant education, capacity building, neighborhood history and neighborhood infrastructure.
GAP-funded projects are intended to have a long-term impact on the neighborhoods while building and sustaining connections among the neighbors and groups within the community. These activities should involve as many residents living in the communities as possible.
The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Monday, June 1.
Submit completed applications to:
