The Neighborhood Improvement Grant program is intended to give residents an opportunity to have direct input and influence into the improvement of Valparaiso’s neighborhoods. The funds provide for small neighborhood-based projects that offer community-wide benefit. The goal is to bring neighborhoods together and to increase partnerships between neighborhoods and the city through positive improvement projects.
Grants of up to $15,000 are available to neighborhood groups in 2020 with a total cap of $100,000. The grant funds are provided by the Redevelopment Commission and the program is administered by the Community Engagement Department.
