Enabling/Regulating Authority

Resolution R-18-156, Neighborhood Enhancement Grant

Background Discussion
  • In September 2018, as part of the County’s overall budget, the Board of County Commissioners approved funding for a Neighborhood Enhancement Grant (NEG) Program. Subsequently, the Board adopted Resolution R-18-156 approving the creation and procedures for the Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program.
  • On September 17, 2019, the Board approved FY2019-2020 funding for the Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program, again as part of the County's overall budget.
  • The purpose of this grant program is to strengthen neighborhood associations and the communities which they serve. Applications must demonstrate community support and involvement in both the application and implementation phases of proposed projects/programs. Manatee County’s Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program provides matching grants of up to $10,000 to neighborhoods.
  • The grant is on a rolling basis and closes when funding runs out. Grant funding is still available. Any remaining funds will be rolled over to the next fiscal year.
  • Palm Aire Condo Association Inc./Fairway Bend neighborhood engagement grant project includes installing new entry signs and improving the landscaping around the entry way and medians.
  • $10,000 will be reimbursed to Palm Aire Condo Association Inc./Fairway Bend once they complete their project.
