Neighborhood Grants

Neighborhood Grants encourage neighborhood outreach and engagement. Approved projects are eligible for up to $500 and include official neighborhood gatherings (such as those sponsored by a block, HOA, PTO, or non-profit), National Night Out events, neighborhood or community clean-up events, community educational programs. Approved events should not celebrate individual milestones such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc. or provide any personal gain to an individual. Neighborhood Grants may be applied for all year to be used for an event within the same calendar year as long as there is funding still available. If funding does run out for the year, it will be noted on this page.

Step 2.Apply for the Grant Online

Grant requests require a completed online application and a corresponding W-9 form (NEW: W-9 no longer required for individuals). If you have previously applied for and have received a grant from the City of Littleton, your W-9 form is already on file and a new one is not required unless there is a change in your information. Please allow up to two weeks for processing once your application has been submitted. If awarded, grant monies will be mailed to the payee listed on the application (which matches the W-9 form) shortly after approval and before the event date.
