Neighborhood Association Grants

The City of West Allis supports formally recognized neighborhood associations by offering several grants.

Organizational Grant

When neighborhood associations apply for formal recognition, the City offers an organizational grant of $1,000. This funding helps new neighborhood organizations get started and make an impact.

Learn more about formal recognition on the City's Starting a Neighborhood Association webpage

Focus Grants

FOCUS grants are intended to fund community building activities within neighborhoods that will create and/or operate special programs or activities that make West Allis unique, better and beautiful. These grants support existing neighborhood associations in their missions. 

Formally recognized neighborhood associations may receive one FOCUS grant of up to $2,000 each year. A cost share is required; neighborhood associations must raise 25% of the total to receive the grant.
