Neighborhood Challenge Grant Program

Do you and your neighbors have ideas to beautify and upgrade your neighborhood, create a safer environment, but just don’t have the funds and know-how to move forward?

The City of Auburn has created a program to help improve your neighborhood by offering grants to neighborhood groups and organizations to make improvements on public property. 

Add park benches, create a gateway sign, improve crosswalks, or plant a garden. Grants are available for projects of $1,000 and up to $10,000. 

Innovative ideas and unique designs are welcomed!
