Background Discussion
On September 9, 2019, as part of the County’s overall budget, the Board of County Commissioners approved FY2019-2020 funding for a Neighborhood Enhancement Grant (NEG) Program. On November 27, 2018, the Board adopted Resolution R-18-156 approving the creation and procedures for the Neighborhood Enhancement Grant Program.

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.

There is no deadline to apply. The grant is open for applications until the funding is depleted for the current fiscal year. If there are any remaining funds, it will be rolled over to the next fiscal year.

$5,425 will be reimbursed to Copperstone Master Association, Inc. once they complete their monument repair project.
