Neighborhoods are the fabric of the Omaha/Council Bluffs communities. We understand that for a community to thrive, it must have strong and involved neighborhoods. That is why we created the Mutual of Omaha Neighborhood Grant Program in 2005.
Each year, we will accept applications from neighborhood organizations or projects from February 1 – March 31. Eligible applicants are neighborhood organizations in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metropolitan area currently working with residents or nonprofit organizations to improve their neighborhood.
Project must fit within at least one of the following categories:
- Crime Prevention/Safety
- Health & Wellness
- Parks & Recreation
The maximum for grant requests is $5,000.
