Mini-Grants

Since 2008, the City of Dayton has awarded more than $600,000 to neighborhood groups and associations through the Neighborhood Mini-Grant Program. Grant recipients are awarded a maximum of $5,000 for physical improvements, marketing materials, community events, and other initiatives that benefit the community and increase organizational capacity. Recipients are required to use the grant to leverage a fifty percent match from other funding sources and in-kind contributions.
