Neighborhood Beautification Grant Program
Framework & Guidelines
To provide funding assistance and promote neighborhood engagement by encouraging neighbors to participate in beautification projects at entrance points of their respective neighborhoods. Qualified projects will be eligible for a 50% match up to a maximum of $500. Examples of eligible projects include:
- Construction and installation of new neighborhood entrance signs
- Rehabilitation of existing entrance signs
- Enhanced landscaping in public/common areas or around entrance signs
- Lighting improvements at entrance signs
- Public benches
Projects must be located in Delta Township and clearly visible from the public right-of-way. Projects must benefit the entire neighborhood and the general public. Proposed projects that solely benefit an individual or select group will not be eligible. Projects must be completed within 12 months of the grant approval. Grant awards will be based on timing of applications received, and annual grant funds available. Grant funds will be included in the Township’s annual operating budget which is approved by the Township Board. For 2017 the Township has appropriated $5,000 for this grant program.
Grant project funding requires at least an equal (1:1) match from the neighborhood group or association and may not exceed 50% of the total cost of the project, or a maximum of $500. The intent of this grant program is not to completely fund projects, but to assist with as many projects as possible throughout the community. To be eligible for reimbursement, the neighborhood group must have the following:
- Approved grant application
- Completion of the approved project
- Submission of all expenditures related to the project and proof those expenditures have been paid
- Submission of before/after pictures to the Township
Completed applications should be submitted to the Delta Township Accounting Dept. All applications received will be reviewed within 30 days of receipt. Once a grant has been awarded, the project lead person will be notified via email. For questions about the grant program please contact our Community & Economic Development Coordinator, Collin Mays at 517-816-8275 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Delta Township reserves the right to make changes to the Neighborhood Entrance and Beautification Grant Program at any time.
