The Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office (NEO) is now accepting applications for Neighborhood Enrichment Grants to help bring green infrastructure and beautification to New Orleans neighborhoods.

The Neighborhood Enrichment Grant is designed to encourage residents to engage with their neighborhood by developing a beautification or “Green Infrastructure” project as a community. Grantees will be awarded between $5,000 – $7,500.

Applicants must meet each of the following criteria:

  • Be a member of any formal or informal neighborhood/community association
  • Be a resident of Orleans Parish
  • 18 years of age or older
  • 501(c)(3) designation (for formal associations) or Federal tax ID number (for informal association)

To be considered for the grant, proposed projects should be feasible, inclusive and open to every resident in the neighborhood. Applications should include realistic project goals and a budget, explaining specifically what the project will do, what it might cost and how it would benefit the entire neighborhood, as well as a component focused on green infrastructure, such as tree planting, rain barrel installation, etc.

Once the grantees are selected, they will then participate in a grant orientation and work with NEO on next steps.

The application deadline is Friday, Sept. 15, 2023, at 5 p.m.
