Grants of up to $10,000 to Franklin County, Ohio nonprofit neighborhood organizations for local, resident-driven community improvement projects in low-and-moderate-income areas. Information sessions are scheduled for November 16 and 17. Projects should promote resident involvement and encourage community volunteerism. Projects support capacity building at the neighborhood level, engage numerous stakeholder groups and showcase local talent.

Examples of projects that have received grants through the program are neighborhood clean-ups, litter and graffiti abatement, neighborhood newsletters, community gardens, neighborhood gateway signage, youth leadership initiatives, civic engagement programs, health education and awareness, neighborhood documentaries, community festivals, home safety tools and educational resources, historic preservation projects, senior support activities and much more.

1) Community & Economic Development - Gateway signage, beautification, newsletters, websites, festivals, public events, public art projects, and more.

2) Education & Public Awareness - Youth service, leadership development, health and fitness, community public relations, social media projects, and more.

3) Crime Prevention & Safety - Block watches, awareness programs, national night out activities, anti- litter, clean and safe programs, anti-graffiti, personal safety, community safety, mediation, and more.

4) Home Improvement and Education - Exterior home improvements, residential lot beautification, physical improvement of blighted/vacant housing, education regarding home repairs, energy efficiency, financial literacy and more.

Applicants are advised not to feel constrained by these examples, as long as the project links to one of the four areas.
