City of Eureka offering community grants up to $500 for neighborhood projects


EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) — The City of Eureka’s Economic Development Division is offering grants up to $500 for residents that want to complete some sort of volunteer project in their neighborhood. Eureka residents 18 and older, as well as non-profits are eligible to apply.

“We want to create a neighborhood support network system throughout the community to increase resilience and create community spaces for people that feel uncomfortable in their neighborhoods,” according to economic development coordinator Christine Tyson.

There are 5 categories for eligible projects, and must be happen within city limits. They include: communications, like designing a neighborhood website, outreach and marketing, like creating welcome packets for new residents, neighborhood identity, physical improvements, such as median improvements or public art, and special events like community clean ups or other gatherings.

“Of course we can’t do those at this time, but that could be something in the future that they could plan,” Tyson adds.
