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 for more information, or call David Easley with the Community Development Department at 913-322-5520 with any questions.
