Neighborhood Grants are awarded for small-scale, community-initiated park improvement projects. Grants from $500 to $5,000 are awarded regularly throughout the year, on a rolling basis, with a grant period of six months. These awards are meant to enable Adopt-A-Park groups to make small but significant improvements to their parks throughout the year. Check out our Community and Impact Grants for larger projects.
