Neighborhood Grant Programs
2018 Matching Grant Program
Neighborhood Matching Grants include projects such as landscaping, signage, pressure cleaning/repairing/resurfacing, purchase of real property (mailboxes, message boards, solar lighting), and security enhancements (security cameras, gates, locks, security lighting). These grants require a 100% community match. A combination of cash and in-kind support will be accepted as the match; a minimum of 50% financial support is required for the community’s portion of the grant. Neighborhood Matching Grants are awarded every year around May. Additionally, the initiative to participate in the program must come from residents and their associations.
Your Neighborhood may be eligible to receive a grant
Applications for the 2018 Town of Jupiter Neighborhood Matching Grant are no longer being accepted. A workshop to discuss the grant criteria was held on February 8, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at the Jupiter Community Center and the deadline to submit your application was March 16, 2018. Communities who send at least one resident representative to the workshop will receive an additional 10 points towards their application marks. HOA property managers representing a community will NOT receive the bonus points. You cannot receive the grant again for three years after being awarded a grant. For example, communities that were awarded Matching Grants within the previous three years (2015-2017) are not eligible to apply in 2018 and so on.
Neighborhoods can receive up to $5,000 (a 1 for 1 community match required)
A combination of cash and in-kind support will be accepted. Maximum in-kind contribution is 50% of the community’s portion of the grant a minimum of 50% financial support is required.
