If your neighborhood needs a picnic facility, new playground, community garden or similar physical improvement, apply for a grant from Lakewood’s 2023 Neighborhood Participation Program.

For more than 25 years, the NPP program has offered an outstanding opportunity for neighborhoods to come together to make a difference. The application process opens Dec. 1 and closes at 5 p.m. on March 1, 2023. The online application and more information about the requirements are available at

Grants of up to $60,000 are available for a project, with a total of $160,000 to be awarded in 2023. Project proposals compete directly with other proposals and are evaluated based on criteria including the benefit to the neighborhood, health and safety, neighborhood support, maintenance requirements and support for the goals of citywide plans such as Lakewood’s Comprehensive Plan. Lakewood City Council makes the final selection of the projects to receive grants.
