The 2022 Neighborhood Improvement Grant program will officially open October 1, 2021. 

This is the fourth year for the program, which is designed to support neighborhood projects that beautify public spaces and strengthen community involvement. Accepted projects must enhance the aesthetics of the neighborhood, provide a clear community benefit, be accessible to all residents and increase civic pride. Examples include community gardens, improvements to community centers, benches, public art or signage. Expenses such as routine maintenance, social events or operating expenses will not be covered.

The City’s Community Development Division will award grants up to $5,000 to any registered Fort Wayne neighborhood association or one of the City’s
four Area Partnerships.
