Subject:  Neighborhood Improvement Grants
 
The City of Greeley announces that matching grant funds are available to help with small neighborhood improvement projects.  Funds can be used for permanent improvements that benefit a common area in the neighborhood and must be matched with either dollars, in kind support, or sweat equity.  Examples of past projects funded through this program include landscaping, walking paths, handicap access ramps, playground equipment, neighborhood entryway signs, and sidewalks.  Technical assistance is available and encouraged to collect information, brainstorm options and start the process.  Grant application information and forms can be found at: http://greeleygov.com/CMO/CI/NRphysicalimprovement.aspx.  Funding is limited to $5,000 per neighborhood project and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis until program funding is exhausted in this calendar year.
 
To begin the process neighbors are encouraged to meet to discuss what they would like to accomplish in the neighborhood and identify what resources the neighborhood can contribute.  Once ideas have been generated, arrange a time to meet with City staff for technical assistance and then submit an application.   
 
In addition, if neighborhoods plan a neighborhood/block party, the City has $25 gift cards available to offset the costs for certain refreshments or party supplies.  Applications for block party gift cards are also be found at the above address.  For more information, contact Greta Steinmetz at 970-350-9774 or Deb DeBoutez, Neighborhood Resource Office, 970-336-4167.
