Surprise City Council approved funding to support the Neighborhood Grant Program, providing eligible neighborhoods with small grants to fund neighborhood events, functions or community improvements. 

Recognizing an opportunity to encourage community engagement and further build strong relationships with communities in Surprise, the city designated $10,000 to support the grant program for FY22.

To be considered, projects must meet the following program criteria:

  • Provide a public benefit
  • Result in a product, which benefits a neighborhood or the larger Surprise community
  • Be feasible for completion by June 2022
  • Involve the benefiting neighborhood in project identification, planning and execution
  • Emphasize neighborhood self-help; or be educational, community-building or a public physical improvement
  • Nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations are ineligible

 Additionally, a minimum of five neighbors within the residential area must sign the application and support the idea; neighborhoods governed by a homeowner’s association (HOA) must have HOA approval, if required.

Interested communities should deliver the complete Neighborhood Grant Program application to City Hall (attention: Jodi Tas) by 5 p.m. on Monday, September 27.

A pre-application meeting that will include information about the program and the application process will be held on Tuesday, July 13, at 4 p.m. at Surprise City Hall, Council Overflow Room, 16000 N. Civic Center Plz.  

For more information about the grant, visit or contact Jodi Tas, 623.222.1330.
