Community Advocacy Organization

Grant Money available for Lansing Neighborhood Groups

Any registered civic organization or active neighborhood watch can apply for a neighborhood grant. If your civic organization is not registered, you can register your civic organization at

Neighborhood organizations, associations, and watches are the preferred grant recipients. All projects must impact a neighborhood in the City of Lansing.

Civic organizations are primarily place-based organizations that serve a smaller defined area of the City of Lansing. Organizations, while representing unique interests and participating in various social activities, generally focus their efforts on a specific portion of the community but also represent a broad range of stakeholders. The organization must be registered as a non-profit entity with the State of Michigan, or, if not registered, organized as an entity or association with a written Charter or Articles of Organization (or bylaws) that state its purpose; subject to review by the Department of Neighborhoods and Citizen Engagement.

Decisions about the eligibility of an organization are at the purview of the City of Lansing's Department of Neighborhoods and Citizen Engagement with the advisement of the Neighborhood Advisory Board. Projects of all sizes up to $5,000 will be considered to receive funding. Organizations may apply for more than one project. Applicants should complete separate applications for each project.
