Keep Charlotte Beautiful (KCB) is now accepting applications for the 2013 Adopt‐a‐ Neighborhood program. The beautification grant program will fund small projects that enhance the quality of life in Charlotte neighborhoods.

The KCB Committee accepts applications for beautification projects ranging from $500 to $5,000. Proposed beautification projects should not exceed $5,000. There is no cost to participate in the Adopt‐A‐Neighborhood program. However, it is necessary for neighbors to volunteer and maintain the project after it is completed.

All neighborhoods and homeowner associations within the city boundaries of Charlotte are eligible to apply for the grant and will be selected to participate in the program through a competitive scoring process. Any beautification project that will make a long‐lasting or permanent impact to a neighborhood is eligible. Examples of acceptable projects include, but are not limited to: tree planting, neighborhood entrance signs, landscaping, public art installation, neighborhood park improvements and community gardens.

Neighborhoods must apply by 5 p.m. February 28 to be considered. Visit the Adopt‐A‐Neighborhood program website for more information and to download an application. Completed applications can be mailed or emailed to:
