Neighborhood Development Grant Program

About the Program
The Roanoke Neighborhood Advocates, in partnership with the City of Roanoke's Office of Neighborhood Services, is proud to offer the Neighborhood Development Grant Program. This program creates opportunities for volunteer community organizations to make their neighborhoods safer, cleaner, and healthier by providing them with the resources to achieve their goals. Through neighborhood development grants, volunteer community organizations have the opportunity to build community spirit, develop leaders within the neighborhood, show others that projects can be accomplished, and recruit volunteers to share in these efforts.

Neighborhood and community groups are encouraged to apply for funding that support projects that complement their organization's business plan, the city's neighborhood plan, the city's 2001-2020 Comprehensive Plan, and/or the city's Arts & Cultural plan.
