Funding applications open for Eagle County’s Neighborhood Partnership Program
EAGLE COUNTY — Eagle County’s Neighborhood Partnership Program is now accepting applications. The program provides assistance in developing small-scale projects for less than $10,000 on public property and/or neighborhood common areas, supporting the public improvement initiatives of local organizations.
There are no deadlines for the 2018 program; applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure responsiveness to grass-roots community project needs. Applications may be submitted in either English or Spanish.
Examples of projects that will be considered for funding and assistance include:
• Improvements to public safety, active transportation amenities and accessibility (sidewalk improvements, ADA access, Safe Routes to Schools, signage, lighting, etc.)
• Parks and playgrounds
• Public art or beautification
• Community gardens, landscape demonstration projects
• Storm water management and water quality protection
A cost-share and maintenance commitment from the applicant is recommended, which can be achieved through cash contributions, in-kind contributions and/or donated labor.
