Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert will award grants to 26 Omaha neighborhood associations, for a total of $75,000.

The response to the 2014 Neighborhood Grants program exceeded previous years.  A total of 46 applications were received and considered.  “This response demonstrates the strength of our neighborhood associations and their willingness to work with the City on projects that we are proud of,” said Mayor Jean Stothert.

The grant requests were reviewed by a committee including community members, representatives of the Parks, Planning and Police Departments and the Mayor’s grants team.  Each proposal was judged based on how it will improve quality of live, the availability of matching or in-kind funds for the project and the overall budget.   The average grant awarded is $2,885.
