City of Frankfort Begins Accepting Community Grant Applications

January 30, 2018 – The City of Frankfort will be accepting applications for their Community Grants beginning Thursday, February 1, 2018.  The two Community Grant programs were introduced during the neighborhood sweeps conducted during the Fall of 2017. The introduction of the two grant programs is intended to increase citizen engagement in neighborhood stabilization and revitalization. 

The grant programs are designed to meet the needs for beautification and collaboration in many of Frankfort’s neighborhoods.  The City Commission approved the two grant programs in September 2017.  The approval included $5,000.00 to establish a Community Beautification Grant Program designed to beautify Frankfort neighborhoods.  The funds will be used to grant up to $500 per project for work to be conducted in public right-of-way that contributes to neighborhood beautification.

The Commission approval also included a grant to help promote community cohesion and build social capital of neighborhoods called the Community Collaboration Grant program which is designed to help stabilize neighborhoods.  This approval included the allocation of $5,000.00 for a Community Collaboration Grant Program designed to celebrate and bring Frankfort neighborhoods together for common goals. These projects could include educational workshops, a community newsletter or a community block party.   Grants can be awarded in amounts of up to $500. 

These grant programs will give citizens a source to fund projects and work together to improve their neighborhoods.  The Beautification program encourages groups or neighborhood associations to work together on projects that will improve the visual aspect of their neighborhood, such as landscaping or debris removal.    Both programs are intended to work to bring a sense of community pride to Frankfort. 

Program guidelines and applications can be found by here on the website or at City Hall.
