Are you a resident of the West Pullman, Greater Grand Crossing, or Austin neighborhoods?   

Have you and your neighbors ever wanted to work on a project together to make an impact in your community?  


Now may be the time to bring your ideas to life with a Neighborhood Grant! These small grants provide funding opportunities for resident groups who want to take on community-focused projects alongside their neighbors in West Pullman, Greater Grand Crossing, or Austin. Whether you’re interested in doing a physical project (like a mural or community garden) or a social one (like a resource fair or block club event), consider applying for funding through the Neighborhood Grants Initiative


To get started, join us at one of our upcoming virtual information sessions, where we’ll cover important information about the program, including requirements, eligibility and how to fill out the application. Attendance is not required to submit a grant application, though it is encouraged for new applicants. 



Learn more about our Neighborhood Grants Initiative here. If you have specific questions, you can contact us at or 312-563-0296 x 313.
