Spring 2018 grant deadline is February 1st! Applicants should start planning now. Connect with the Program Administrator soon to confirm eligibility of proposed project and neighborhood group.
The City of Plano has developed the Neighborhood Vitality and Beautification Grant Program to support the city’s strategic goal of “vibrant and renewing neighborhoods”. This program provides matching grants to neighborhood groups interested in building strong relationships around a community-driven beautification project. All projects must:
support neighborhood goals
be highly visible from the public realm
have a community benefit
enlist community participation
result in an enhancement of the neighborhood appearance
be within the City of Plano limits
The program is a matching grant that requires a 50% match from the neighborhood. The match requirement can be met with cash, in-kind donations, and volunteer hours. Please review the guidelines for more information.
