TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — If your neighborhood is in need of some beautification, the City of Tallahassee is here to help.

In its third year, the city is helping communities with its, Vibrant Neighborhoods Grant Program.

Associations can apply for the $500 to $2,500 grants to plant trees, add benches or even help start a community garden.

City Commissioner Curtis Richardson said the program has had a great reception in the past and can't wait to see what Tallahassee Neighborhoods will do with the money.

"We established this small grant program so that they could do basic projects like community meetings, improving the quality of life in the neighborhood through landscaping, streetscaping, community gardens. Those kinds of things that would bring the community together," said Commissioner Richardson.

The grants are on a first-come, first-serve basis and registration is now available here.
