Mayor's Neighborhood Advisory Board (NAB)


The Mayor’s Neighborhood Advisory Board (NAB) is made up of a group of individuals from each ward that provide support and guidance to neighborhoods and other organizations regarding the possibility of receiving a grant. The NAB member works with any group within their ward to provide guidance from start to finish and make sure all questions are answered; issues are solved; and their end goal is achieved.

The NAB grant is a tool to help groups obtain funding for many types of projects, events, functions that will enhance their area, and bring people together in a positive setting. The creativity is endless in how the funds are spent as long as they follow the simple guidelines within the application. At the end of their project a “Final Report” is due on what the funds were spent on, information on the event, how many attending, and the impact it had on the group. This report is mandatory from each participating group so we can track how the funds are spent and whether the project was beneficial.

Neighborhood Grants Forms

Any registered civic organization or active neighborhood watch can apply for a neighborhood grant. Neighborhood organizations, associations and watches are the preferred grant recipients. All projects must impact a neighborhood in the City of Lansing. Your organization will be notified if you have been selected to receive a grant or if your application was denied. Once the project has been completed your organization is required to complete the Grant Final Report.

The grant cycle begins in October which gives each group time to plan their projects and “fine tune” any changes before submitting their application in February and funds are distributed in April.
