Neighborhood Grant Program

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

 Is your neighborhood association or neighborhood group planning an event or project to strengthen the bonds in your community? The City of Sunnyvale is now accepting applications for the Neighborhood Grant Program. This program offers grants of up to $1,000 per neighborhood, which must be applied for in advance and correspond to at least one of four categories:

    • Increasing communication among neighbors
    • Building bridges between cultural groups
    • Improving the physical condition of the neighborhood
    • Enhancing neighborhood pride and identity

Creative ideas for projects and events are encouraged! Examples of some grant fund uses are: start-up funds for neighborhood newsletters or directories, clean-up and beautification projects, block parties and neighborhood cultural celebrations.

Neighborhood Grant Program applications are currently being accepted for projects and events to be completed during the 2014/15 fiscal year, subject to City Council approval of the budget. Grant applications will be accepted until Friday, May 16 at 5 p.m. Program guidelines and a downloadable grant application are posted below.

Neighborhood Associations in Sunnyvale

Neighborhood associations are a valuable asset to the Sunnyvale community.  They provide an excellent communication link between City staff and residents.  Associations are typically formed for one of two reasons - A) to address a problem/challenge with the help of other residents or B) to further a sense of community.  Regardless of the reason(s) for forming, the City is dedicated to helping neighborhood association leaders accomplish their goals.  If you are thinking about starting a neighborhood association, please let us know - we have resources to assist you in getting started.

Starting a Neighborhood Association

If you are interested in starting a neighborhood association, we first recommend you check the map above.  There may already be an association in your area for you to join.  If so, you may check with them about upcoming meetings or events, as well as opportunities to get involved as a volunteer.

If there isn't already a neighborhood association in your area, you may be thinking about starting one.  There are over two dozen neighborhood associations in Sunnyvale, each with its own set of goals and objectives.  You may want to chat with other neighborhood associations about the reasons they got started and what helped them in the beginning.  You may also choose to contact City staff, as they have some resources available to help you get started.  Below are some materials which provide information about starting a neighborhood association and registering with the City of Sunnyvale.
