Neighborhood Block Party Grant

The Neighborhood Block Party Grant program is a new CRC program beginning in June 2024. This program was created as a way to further the CRC’s purpose to promote neighborhood community-building activities, help build positive relations among the community, and enhance problem-solving skills among residents throughout the community.

Possible uses for the Neighborhood Block Party Grants include:

  • Supplies for a neighborhood block party
  • Print and promotional materials for a neighborhood block party
  • Activities for a neighborhood block party

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until Friday, October 4, 2024, or until funds are depleted.

Please read the full grant guidelines before applying. If you are considering applying for a grant and are unsure whether your project is eligible for the program, please contact the City’s Community Relations Manager, Hannah Scott-Carter, at hannahscottcarter@goshencity.com.

If you’re interested in a grant for your neighborhood, apply here.

Program Overview

  • The maximum annual grant total per neighborhood is $200.
  • The Neighborhood Block Party does not require a match component.
  • Applications may be submitted anytime between Monday, June 17, 2024, or until all funds have been granted. If the application process must be closed before Friday, October 4, 2024, an announcement will be posted on the website and social media.
  • All funds must be expensed, and receipts and a final report must be submitted to the City of Goshen’s Community Relations Manager, Hannah Scott-Carter, no later than Friday, November 15, 2024.
  • A neighborhood representative will purchase grant-related goods or services and submit receipts to the CRC for reimbursement. Alternatively, vendors may be paid directly by the City (i.e., through an invoice). All entities seeking reimbursement or payment from the City must complete vendor documents as required by the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office. The Community Relations Manager will provide guidance to each neighborhood.
  • A funding agreement will be executed between the CRC and the neighborhood. Once all signatures are in place, the neighborhood may start their project. The City is under no obligation to reimburse the organization for expenses incurred before finalizing the Funding Agreement.
  • Grant funds may not be used to pay for alcoholic beverages.
  • Grant applicants may be formed for the sole purpose of completing a grant-funded project and need not be formally recognized as neighborhood associations but must still define their geographic area.
