Looking to improve your neighborhood with a new entryway sign, more lighting or additional trees and shrubs? The City of Arlington is pleased to announce another Neighborhood Matching Grant call for projects. Through this year’s program, $150,000 is available to fund improvement projects that will beautify and enhance the public spaces and strengthen neighborhoods throughout The American Dream City.

Neighborhoods can apply for up to $25,000 for their projects, which could include public art, beautification, landscaping, entrance signs, sidewalks, traffic calming or other neighborhood capacity building improvements. Applications are due by Friday, Nov. 3, 2021.

The annual matching grant program is just one of the many ways Arlington continues working to Champion Great Neighborhoods, which the City Council has identified as one of five key priorities. Great neighborhoods contribute to a higher quality of life and greater investment in our economy.

And don’t forget to take the City’s online Neighborhood Engagement Survey for your chance to win the use of the Block Party Trailer during National Night Out. You can read about grant program eligibility requirements, the Block Party Trailer and more in the latest edition of the Champion Great Neighborhoods newsletter. All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.
