Here’s a chance to spruce up the neighborhood. Omaha’s 2014 Neighborhood Grant program is ready to kick-in cash to help polish your piece of the earth.
Neighborhood organizations that are registered and listed in the City of Omaha Neighborhood Directory are eligible to apply for grants up to $5,000.
Mayor Jean Stothert said, “This is an excellent opportunity. Many of the best ideas come from people who are committed to their neighborhoods.”
Applications should describe projects that creatively improve the quality of life, safety and appearance, environmental impact and livability of the neighborhood.
The application deadline is March 24 and winners will be announced May 7.
The applications are available on the mayor’s Web site.
