The City continues to invest in neighborhoods throughout The American Dream City, with the Arlington City Council approving more than $105,000 in new Neighborhood Matching Grants for seven projects across the City.

The Neighborhood Matching Grant program was developed in 2007 to foster civic pride, enhance neighborhoods and encourage collaboration between residents and City government. The program aligns with the City Council priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods.

For a project to be considered, it must be submitted by neighbors, serve a public purpose, have a detailed timeline and meet all City codes. Each neighborhood must also contribute 20% grant match towards the project through cash, in-kind donations and/or volunteer hours.

The projects selected to receive funding in 2021 include:

Neighborhood Project  Amount
Arlington Downs Townhouse Corp. Revitalization Project  $20,000
Bel Air on Abram Community Association, Inc. Market Green  $20,100
