You can use the Neighborhood Block Party Grant to help cover party-related expenses such as food, paper goods, and entertainment. Block parties are a great way for neighbors to come together, build relationships, and engage in family fun activities. Review all the guidelines and steps below and apply for a grant! Applications must be approved prior to the party in order to receive a grant reimbursement for your party.
If you'd like to host a block party without applying for the grant, complete the online application below but select "No" for the grant.
The City accepts applications from April 1 through Oct. 15. The City must approve the block party application prior to the party. Please submit your application at least one week before the party. Block parties must take place by Nov. 4.
The City of Merriam reserves the right to deny any block party application.
You'll get an email when the Block Party is approved. You'll get a second email from City staff if you requested grant funding for your party.
Receipts must be submitted by Nov. 7 for reimbursement.
