Could your neighborhood benefit from new trees, a community garden, solar installation or an affordable housing project?
The city of Kansas City just announced a new Rebuild KC Neighborhood Grand program to encourage better neighborhoods with projects that promote affordable housing, sustainable streetscapes, blight elimination, violence prevention, energy efficiency, solar and renewable energy and overall healthy communities.
Applications will be considered from individuals, neighborhood associations, homes associations, not-for-profit organizations, for-profit companies and others for proposals that have a community or public benefit. The program will be administered by the KCMO Neighborhood Services Department and will primarily use American Rescue Plan Act Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. Grants will range in size and scope depending on community requests, demonstrated need and available funds.
“I want Kansas City residents to know we’re listening to them and are actively working to prioritize their ideas into our planning so we can do our part to make neighborhoods even more vibrant and active,” said Brian Platt, KC city manager.
Interested individuals and organizations can provide initial information using this form. Projects selected for further considerations may be asked for additional information.
