Neighborhood Vitality & Beautification Grants
The Fall 2018 grant deadline of August 1st, has passed. The next application deadline will be February 1st, 2019. Applicants should start planning now. Connect with the Program Administrator now 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.
Application and Deadline
The program has two grant cycles, fall and spring, each year. The next application deadline will be on Friday, February 1st, 2019 by 5:00 p.m. Online applications will be made available in fall of 2018 for the spring 2019 grant cycle. Paper applications will no longer be accepted. For guidance, please see the How-To Guide for Applicants document under Quick Links. For additional questions, please contact the program administrator, Esmeralda de la Cruz at email@example.com or 972-208-8150.
