Grants of $1,000 to Arkansas nonprofit neighborhood organizations for community improvement projects. Funding is intended to promote events and activities that will have a direct and lasting impact on the quality of life in local communities. Grants must benefit residents in Little Rock. The purpose of the grants is to identify resources needed to strengthen and make improvements in their areas; and to protect the health and safety of citizens through the efficient implementation and enforcement of environmental and animal services.
The goal of the Love Your Block Grant Program is to encourage projects that promote volunteerism, foster civic pride, enhance and beautify neighborhoods, or encourage improvements in the way residents connect and solve problems. The City of Little Rock seeks well-qualified neighborhood-based organizations to submit proposals that will result in impactful improvement to the neighborhoods they serve. Citizens across the city are the best caretakers of their neighborhoods, and the Love Your Block Grant Program will help to foster a sense of community and belonging.
Project Description, Specific Goals of the Initiative:
As an added incentive to neighborhoods, Housing and Neighborhood Programs will review the completed projects in January 2021 that have met all the requirements and announce a “Love Your Block Project of the Year” in the Housing and Neighborhood Programs Newsletter.
