Neighborhood Improvement Awards

Aurora awards $60K in Neighborhood Improvement Grants
Posted on 06/02/2023

The city of Aurora has awarded $60,000 in grant funds to 14 groups across all city wards as part of its 2023 Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program.

These competitive grants of up to $5,000 each promote projects that improve a neighborhood's physical condition, enhance pride and identity, increase neighborhood communication, or bring new assets to the neighborhood that foster gathering and positive experiences. Projects selected for 2023 are as varied as landscaping, a community message board, a neighborhood market and neighborhood cleanups. 

Awarded neighborhood groups include:

  • Del Mar Parkway Neighborhood  
  • Business Arts and Culture Alliance 
  • 45th Place of Hawks Landing 
  • Meadowood Neighborhood Association  
  • Highland Park East Neighborhood Association 
  • Tyndall Green II Homeowner’s Association 
  • Northwest Aurora and Del Mar Neighborhoods
  • Mission Viejo Homeowners’ Association
  • Lake Shore Community Neighborhood Watch
  • Summit Park Townhomes
  • Chambers Ridge Garden Club
  • Prairie Ridge at Saddle Rock East
  • Star Pass at Saddle Rock
  • Shadow Creek Neighborhood 

Neighborhood organizations and residents (where a neighborhood organization may not exist) were encouraged to apply. Awarded groups have until October 2023 to use the grant funds and complete their projects.

Although the Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program is now closed for the year, residents are encouraged to apply for one or more neighborhood mini-grants, including a Know Your Neighbor Grant for a block party or clean-up events, a Printing Assistance Grant to provide posters and flyers for community activities, and a Small Neighborhood Activity Grant for events like festivals or tournaments. Mini-grant applications are open now at
