Want to learn more about the City of Arlington’s Neighborhood Matching Grant program? An information is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, January 18 in the Community Room of the South Police Station, 1030 SW Green Oaks Blvd.
The Neighborhood Matching Grant Program is available to fund improvement projects that will beautify and enhance the public spaces in neighborhoods throughout The American Dream City.
Neighborhoods can apply for up to $25,000 for neighborhood projects. Project examples include public art, beautification, landscaping, sidewalks, traffic calming, and neighborhood entrance signs.
Applications for this grant program, which opened November 1, 2017, are due by Thursday, February 15, 2018. The Guidebook and Application are now available online at www.arlington-tx.gov/cdp/neighborhoods/grant. The Guidebook contains important information that applicants will need to know when preparing their project and completing the application.
