Neighborhood Mini-Grants 


Mini-Grants Info. for 2015

Dayton’s neighborhood leaders demonstrate creativity, collaboration and hard work in their efforts to improve livability, add amenities and promote awareness. The City of Dayton’s Neighborhood Mini-Grant program provides a boost to revitalization and community-building across the city. Since 2008, the City of Dayton has awarded more than $200,000 to neighborhood groups and business associations through the Neighborhood Mini-Grants program. Recipients are awarded a maximum of $5,000 for physical improvements, marketing materials, community events, and other initiatives benefiting the community or increasing organizational capacity. Recipients are encouraged to use grant funds to leverage other funding sources and contributions. Applications are reviewed by a selection committee and ranked on standard criteria and special criteria. For more information, contact Connie Nisonger at 333-7380.
