The City of Rowlett has allocated funds for neighborhood improvement projects to help beautify our public spaces and strengthen the neighborhood associations in our subdivisions. Strong neighborhoods are great places to live and working on a common goal is a great way to meet new people and strengthen existing ties in these smaller communities. Your neighborhood will be eligible for a matching grant if the project:
Improves the appearance or usability of public space
Increases neighborhood cooperation and involves a significant number of neighbors
Has a detailed budget reflecting accurate costs and matching sources
Has a detailed timeline and a long-term maintenance plan
Meets all code and permitting requirements
Because this is a matching grant your neighborhood must provide an investment in your project. This requirement can be met with cash, material donations, donated professional services or sweat equity. The maximum amount of the Grant from the City is $2,500.
Because the matching grant is an investment made by the City of Rowlett it is only available to homeowner, neighborhood or Crime Watch associations. Other qualifications include:
The association must be registered with the City of Rowlett for at least one year
Membership must be open to all households within the neighborhood
