Eagle County’s Neighborhood Partnership Program is now accepting applications. The program provides assistance in developing small-scale projects under $10,000 on public property and/or neighborhood common areas, supporting the public improvement initiatives of local organizations.

There are no deadlines for the 2018 program; applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure responsiveness to grass-roots community project needs. Applications may be submitted in either English or Spanish.

Examples of projects that will be considered for funding and assistance include:

  • Improvements to public safety, active transportation amenities and accessibility (sidewalk improvements, ADA access, Safe Routes to Schools, signage, lighting, etc.)
  • Parks and playgrounds
  • Public art or beautification
  • Community gardens, landscape demonstration projects
  • Storm water management and water quality protection

A cost-share and maintenance commitment from the applicant is recommended, which can be achieved through cash contributions, in-kind contributions, and/or donated labor.

An online application, frequently asked questions and information on past projects can be found at www.eaglecounty.us/NPP in both English and Spanish. For additional information, contact Adam Palmer at 970-328-8734 or at adam.palmer@eaglecounty.us.
