Block Improvement Funding

Small groups of residents can apply for city and foundation funding for improvements to their block.  Projects can include lighting, address numbers, porch chairs or benches, neighborhood signage or flags.  Funding applications  are simple.  HEDC’s neighborhood coordinator is happy to help.
