Neighborhood Vitality & Beautification Grants

The City of Plano has developed the Neighborhood Vitality and Beautification Grant Program to support the city’s strategic goal of “vibrant and renewing neighborhoods”. This program provides matching grants to neighborhood groups interested in building strong relationships around a community-driven beautification project. All projects must:
- support neighborhood goals
- be highly visible from the public realm
- have a community benefit
- enlist community participation
- result in an enhancement of the neighborhood appearance
- be within the City of Plano limits
The program is a matching grant that requires a 50% match from the neighborhood. The match requirement can be met with cash, in-kind donations, and volunteer hours. Please review the guidelines for more information.
