Neighborhood MINI GrantS
About the Neighborhood Mini Grants
Vibrant neighborhoods improve quality of life in our city. Everett residents who want to foster a greater sense of community can collaborate with their neighborhood association to implement projects and activities. Together, residents can apply for City mini grants to help make life better in their neighborhoods.
Everett neighbors build better parks, host National Night Out events, improve communication, prepare for disasters, create art projects, hold community block parties, and much more through these grants. Dozens of community improvements have been made through neighborhood volunteer action with City of Everett support. What’s your idea?

How much money is available?
Each neighborhood association can apply for up to $1000 in City funds annually. Residents must match the City funds with volunteer labor, donations and/or in kind goods and services from the community.
How can I apply for funds?
Applications are submitted by the neighborhood associations to the City Office of Neighborhoods in January or February each year. In the fall, neighbors begin preparing plans for the following year’s application cycle.
- If you have a great idea to enhance your neighborhood, see if your idea is supported and shared by others in your area and then submit your idea to the neighborhood association.
- Next, work with your neighborhood association to prepare an application describing your idea, the budget and how you will match the City funds.
- Projects are discussed and voted on by neighborhood associations before the applications are submitted to the City for approval.
When do projects get started?
Neighborhood groups are requested to submit applications by February 28th, for projects during the calendar year. Most neighborhoods host events and activities starting in spring. Contact your neighborhood chair to learn more about the activities and projects planned in your neighborhood!
