The Neighbor Up Grant is a partially reimbursable grant. Approved funds that are not eligible for pre-payment as outlined below must first be spent by the grantee. Receipts or invoices showing payment must be submitted within 30 days of the event conclusion. Upon review of eligible receipts or invoices, the City will reimburse the grantee.
Final receipts for prepaid funds not paid to Ogden City must be submitted within 30 days of the conclusion of the event. Failure to do so may result in collection action and/or ineligibility for future grants.
Neighborhood groups must complete their activities/events within eight (8) months of receiving notification from the City of grant award. Activities may begin after grant approval and must be completed by June 15 of each fiscal year. A follow-up evaluation must be completed within 30 days of conclusion of the activity or event. This evaluation should provide photos and detail how the activity helped strengthen the neighborhood, how many people were impacted, new ways neighbors worked to create a more connected community, if objectives were met, and if the project was successful. The evaluation may also include a “lessons learned” section which will used to improve future activities across the City.
Grantees agree to allow photographs of the grant funded activity to be posted to the City’s website or otherwise disseminated through the City’s social media outlets.
