County grants available for neighborhood improvement projects

A Mason District Little League game at the Bailey's Community Center.

Park benches, trails, pavilions, tot lots, community-building social events: These are the types of projects funded by Neighborhood Enhancement Partnership Program (NEPP) grants.

Community associations, HOAs, and recreation clubs should definitely consider applying for these Fairfax County grants aimed enhancing the quality of life in neighborhoods. Proposals are due July 9.

A total of $100,000 is available for fiscal year 2014.  The maximum grant amount is $5,000, and grantees must contribute extensive volunteer hours and/or donated goods and services.

According to the most recent annual report on the NEPP program, for 2011, there were five funded projects in Mason that year—which is more than any other district. Those projects included:

Potential applicants are encouraged to participate in one of two upcoming NEPP conferences: June 5 at the Pennino Building, 12011 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax; or June 10 at the South County Center, 8350 Richmond Highway, Alexandria. Both sessions are 6:30-7:30 p.m. For more information, contact Andrew Janos, 703/324-5307.
