The Neighbor Up Grant Program is designed to help neighbors better connect with each other by strengthening a sense of community and improving the quality of life in Ogden’s neighborhoods. The goals of the Program are as follows:
Build sense of community.
Develop or renew neighborhood relationships.
Encourage interaction between generations and cultures.
Increase governance and organizational leadership of neighborhood organizations or associations.
Neighbor Up Grantsare intended to facilitate bringing neighborhood groups together. Citizens or neighborhood associations may apply grant money for activities such as block parties or picnics, special event kick-off celebrations, ice cream socials, neighborhood crime prevention or other safety-related activities, trainings or other functions or gatherings that build connections between neighbors. Grants are also available to fund supplies for neighborhood cleanup or beautification projects.
To comply with State tax code/laws and to equitably supply grant funds city wide, only one (1) Neighbor Up Grant award per calendar year shall be issued to a specific neighborhood, sponsor, and/or co-sponsor. Neighbor Up Grant applications may be submitted any time throughout the year (at least two months prior to event date), and will be awarded on activities that meet eligibility requirements on a first come, first served basis until the allocated funding is depleted.
The safety and well-being of Ogden City citizens is a top priority for the Ogden City Council. The Council strongly encourages recipients of the Neighbor Up Grant program to contact and abide by Weber/Morgan Health Department guidelines and implement the appropriate protocols to keeping your guests safe during your event. Ogden City and Ogden City Council are not liable for any health implications as a result of your event.
