Small and Simple Grant Program

​​2019 Small & Simple Grant Program

The Small and Simple Grant Program was created by the Mayor’s Office to fund projects that demonstrate city-wide benefit and encourage community engagement. There is a competitive application process and project awards are up to $5,000.

  • All City-recognized neighborhood associations are eligible to apply. Multiple neighborhoods may submit a joint application.
  • Grants will be awarded based on a competitive review process.
  • Grants will be awarded up to $5,000.
  • Applications are accepted between March 1- May 15, 2019. Grant awards will be announced June 1, 2019
  • Matching funds are not required.
  • Funds are available for one-time projects.
  • These grants are intended to make real, substantive, and positive changes in the neighborhoods.
  • Examples of allowable projects are included on page 2, but projects are not limited to those examples.
  • Projects should be led and completed by the neighborhood associations.
  • Funds are provided on a reimbursable basis, so neighborhoods must be willing and able to make necessary upfront costs.
  • Applications must include written permission from necessary land owner or City departments, where applicable.
