Collective Impact Lincoln is pleased to announce a new round of community improvement mini-grants available to Lincolnites in our six focus neighborhoods.

From now until June 1, residents can apply for up to $300 to bring their improvement ideas to life. The funds are reserved for resident-led projects in Collective Impact Lincoln’s six focus neighborhoods: Clinton, Belmont, Everett, Near South, Hartley, and University Place. The other requirement is that it brings benefit and value to the neighborhood and community.

This is the fourth set of neighborhood mini-grants to be offered from Collective Impact Lincoln, a partnership between Civic Nebraska and Nebraska Appleseed, since 2019. In all, more than three dozen initiatives ranging from tree plantings to music festivals to adopt-a-block programs have been funded through the program.

“As we approach a new season of growth and new life, we hope these mini-grants can enable residents and community groups to come together and give a boost to our neighborhoods,” said Alicia Phillips of Civic Nebraska, Collective Impact Lincoln’s program manager.
