Community Building Grants

Providing an opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another is a key way to improve relationships in the neighborhood and to create a safer environment. The Community Building Grant Program funds projects in our community’s low/moderate income neighborhoods to provide this opportunity. Projects funded include Music in Jackson Park, ice cream socials, and neighborhood block parties. View the grant program guidelines and application form.
