The Omaha Neighborhood Grants committee awarded $80,000 to 24 neighborhood groups combining leadership development and community building work around Omaha.

As a result, the committee discovered several new initiatives, such as the developing Plum Nelly East Neighborhood Association, which aims to invest in neighboring and connectedness. Additionally, there were investments in re-treeing efforts, murals and artwork celebrating the contributions of diverse communities, and community clean-ups across the metro.

Omaha Neighborhood Grants are one of our five Community Interest Funds. Anyone can donate to these resident-led grant programs.

Grants made through our Community Interest Funds are strategic investments meant to increase access and equity. We ask community members to lead grant processes using their own power and understanding. Each committee is made up of residents who come from or identify with the population being served. They review proposals and decide which projects to fund based on the needs they are seeing in their community.

For Omaha Neighborhood Grants, funding decisions are made by a diverse committee of residents representing neighborhoods across Omaha.

The next grant cycle will open on January 1, 2023.
