Grant proposals will clearly describe how the partnership-driven project will help neighborhood and community organizations to build livable, equitable, and sustainable neighborhoods and communities for all by meeting one or more of the following goals:
•    Build community
•    Attract new and diverse members
•    Sustain current volunteers and members
Eligible applicants are: 
•    Neighborhood associations
•    Community-based organizations
•    Grassroots community groups
In addition to building livable, equitable, and sustainable neighborhoods and communities – applicants must partner with one or more of the following: (1) neighborhood associations; (2) organizations predominantly led by people from historically under-engaged communities including communities of color, elders, immigrants and refugees, youth, people with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bi and trans communities; and/or (3) business associations or individual businesses in order to be considered for a Neighborhood Small Grant.
Grants will be awarded through a competitive process and will be reviewed by a community-based grant selection committee comprised of coalition, neighborhood and community-based organizational representatives. We are currently seeking interested community members to serve on the Grant Selection Committee. Learn more about committee member obligations and requirements here.
