Applying for a Neighborhood to the River grant is a two-stage process:

Step 1. Submit a pre-application. A Grant Coordinator will review the pre-application and select applicants to complete full applications. The two-page pre-application can be submitted year-round.

Step 2. If selected, Grant Coordinators then invite selected applicants to submit a full application.


Step 1. Submit Pre-application.

Download and complete the pre-application form (available as a PDF or Word document).
