Neighborhood Improvement Grants
Neighborhood Improvement Grant project type example - playgroundNeighborhood Improvement projects include physical improvements to public areas in your community. We want every community in Charlotte to be a beautiful place to live, work, and shop in. Public areas include land owned by your neighborhood or homeowner's association. It could also be land owned by the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, or the State of North Carolina, but if so you must get permission from the proper authority--we'll discuss that a little later on. The land could also be owned by a business or private individual in the community, but they must provide written permission, and the project must be something that the entire community can access and benefit from. Improvements to personal property are not eligible.

Project examples include: 

  • Landscaping and neighborhood beautification
  • Community gardens
  • Neighborhood entrance signs
  • Small playgrounds  
  • Neighborhood murals and public art projects​​
  • Neighborhood nuisance prevention
