The Neighborhood Beautification Program (NBP) grant provides funding to Detroit-based neighborhood associations, block clubs, faith-based organizations, and non-profit organizations that currently own property or purchase Land Bank vacant lots (up to 4) to carry out a project in their community.
Grant awards range from $500 to $15,000.
NBP has three eligible project areas:
Clean-up Activities, Community Gardens, and Public Space Activities.
Non-profit organizations and faith-based organizations need to partner with a neighborhood block club
within 1 mile of their facility.
Must be a registered block club with the City of Detroit Department of Neighborhoods.
To receive funds, all applicants (even if approved by the Department of Neighborhoods) must be a NonProfit 501(c)(3) organization to receive grant funds.
If the applicant is a 501 (c)(3) organization, move to Step 2. If you do not have a 501 (c)(3) designation, you may partner with one in your community.
If applicant already owns the vacant lot(s), move to Step 3.
Please note: The property owned must be in the name of a legal entity with the same name as the applicant organization.
If applicant does not own vacant lot(s), go to Detroit Land Bank Authority:
