The Dallas Neighborhood Vitality Grant Program (DNV Grant) was created to encourage neighborhood organizations to identify and implement projects that address specific neighborhood needs while increasing resident engagement, promoting neighborhood pride, and building neighborhood organization capacity through collaborations and partnerships. Projects must serve a public purpose and provide community benefits by promoting the creation of strong, safe, and vibrant neighborhoods. The Dallas Neighborhood Vitality Grant is a refresh of the growSouth Neighborhood Challenge Grant.
The grant program will offer funding on a reimbursement basis to top-ranked neighborhood enhancement projects through a competitive process. Project proposals must be submitted by neighborhood organizations. This grant places strong emphasis on projects that engage neighborhood residents and are ready for implementation. Funding ranging from $1,500 - $10,000 would be considered for neighborhood physical improvements projects and neighborhood engagement enhancements projects.
