Merriam residents can receive up to $200 to host a block party! Get to know your neighbors while enjoying hotdogs and watermelon or have an ice cream social. 

Use the Neighborhood Block Party Grant to help cover party-related expenses such as food, paper goods, party favors, and to hire entertainment. 

Apply for the grant through Oct. 15. Visit merriam.org/blockparty for more information, or call David Easley with the Community Development Department at 913-322-5520 with any questions.
