As part of its efforts to foster strong and healthy neighborhoods, the City of Renton announces the Neighborhood Project Grant Program for 2013. The grants are available to organized neighborhood associations with defined boundaries in the City of Renton that have been officially recognized by the city.
The grants stimulate community projects that help build stronger neighborhoods and strengthen partnerships between the city and its neighborhoods.
“This is a great opportunity for neighbors to work together to support each other and improve their community,” said Mayor Denis Law.
Eligible projects include physical improvements that build or enhance a feature of the neighborhood or benefit the general public.
The grants range in the amount of $3,000 to $5,000 per project although the actual amount is based on a project’s merit and is determined by the Renton City Council, based on the recommendation of a staff-level interdepartmental team.
Grant applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 8, 2013. Applications may be accessed on our website at rentonwa.gov. When submitting an application please include neighborhood bylaws and list board members.
Awards will be announced in early May 2013. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Neighborhood Program Coordinator Norma McQuiller at 425-430-6595 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
