What is the growSouth Neighborhood Challenge Grant?

The growSouth Neighborhood Challenge Grant was created to promote neighborhood pride, resident engagement and neighborhood improvements.  The grant offers financial assistance for neighborhood groups to improve physical features and develop service-based projects. Projects must serve a public purpose that promotes strong, safe and vibrant communities. The City will award up to $10,000 in grant funds to community groups with top-ranked, service-based or construction projects. In collaboration with the Planning and Urban Design Department, the Mayor's Office seeks to ignite neighborhood creativity and resident empowerment throughout the City of Dallas.

2017-18 Grant Cycle

The City of Dallas is currently kicking off the 2017-18 grant cycle. Prior to the application deadline, there will be a Project Development Workshop to clarify application requirements and to orient neighborhood organizations on putting together a good grant application. Attendance by at least one member of the applicant organization is required for grant submission.
