Community Engagement Grant

The Community Engagement (CE) Grant is used to fund items and activities to boost resident participation in the City’s Neighborhood Councils (NCs). In 2022, individual neighborhood councils may apply for up to $850 to utilize the money to increase resident participation at NC meetings, promote NC work, and increase overall engagement of the neighborhood.

The 2022 Community Engagement Grant program is currently accepting applications from neighborhood councils until the deadline (June 17, 2022). All required documents can be found under the Program Documents header on this page.

For neighborhood councils submitting an application:

  • Please make sure to submit the 2021 Performance Measures sheet in addition to the application, if you received CE Grant funding in 2021.
  • The Reprographics Pricing Sheet is available under Program Documents so that you can estimate the costs of print jobs.
  • If you plan to do a mailing, there are discounts available if the mailing meets the requirements for Bulk Mailing Rates. Please note that mailing costs are often high for neighborhoods to cover, and any costs exceeding the CE Grant allocation are the responsibility of the neighborhood council.
