Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert is awarding grants to 26 Omaha neighborhood associations. A $75,000 fund will cover everything from CPR training to playground improvements.

The annual program drew a record number of 46 applications.

"This response demonstrates the strength of our neighborhood associations and their willingness to work with the City," says Mayor Stothert.

The grant requests were reviewed by a committee including community members, representatives of the Parks, Planning and Police Departments, and the Mayor's grants team.

The average grant awarded is $2,885.
