The Neighbor Up Grant Program is designed to help neighbors better connect with each other by strengthening a sense of community and improving the quality of life in Ogden’s neighborhoods. The goals of the Program are as follows:
Build sense of community.
Develop or renew neighborhood relationships.
Encourage interaction between generations and cultures.
Increase governance and organizational leadership of neighborhood organizations or associations.
Neighbor Up Grants are intended to facilitate bringing people together. Citizens or neighborhood associations may apply for up to $1000 for activities such as block parties or picnics, special event kick-off celebrations, ice cream socials, neighborhood crime prevention or other safety-related activities, trainings or other functions or gatherings that build connections between neighbors. Grants are also available to fund supplies for neighborhood cleanup or beautification projects.
Neighbor Up Grant applications may be submitted any time throughout the year (at least two months prior to event date), and will be awarded to activities that meet eligibility requirements on a first come, first served basis until the allocated funding is depleted.
The City’s budget year runs from July 1 to June 30. Funding for the pilot project became available August 15, 2017.
