Neighborhood Mini-Grants 


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. Recipients are awarded a maximum of $5,000 for physical improvements, marketing materials, community events, and other initiatives. 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 and special criteria. 

For more information, contact Connie Nisonger at 333-7380.
