Neighborhood Partnership Grants 2022

Place Matters

Brown County United Way (BCUW) is again accepting Neighborhood Partnership Grant Request for Proposal. These micro-grants enable Brown County organizations and associations to engage in community-building activities, programs, or projects that strengthen the fabric of designated Green Bay neighborhoods.

The open application period is March 7, 2022-April 1, 2022 (4:30pm).  

This Request for Proposal is for agencies and/or associations interested in community development programs/projects/activities that will strengthen local Green Bay neighborhoods.

Proposals must align with BCUW neighborhood priorities:

  • Enhancements to communal physical spaces for beautification, safety, wellness
