Neighborhood Watch is a great way to maintain a healthy and vibrant neighborhood, as well as aid local law enforcement in their efforts to stop crime. Neighbors build relationships with one another, learn about crime prevention, and work collaboratively to report suspicious activity and reduce crime.
Each Neighborhood Watch group now has the opportunity to receive one annual grant of up to $300. Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding runs out. Neighborhoods can decide how they would like to use the money. Examples of how the grant may be used include annual block parties, flyers, or informational materials. The primary goal of the new grant program is to help keep Neighborhood Watch groups organized and engaged for years to come.
