City of Fishers awards 18 neighborhoods with $337K to enhance vibrancy and build community

The City of Fishers awarded 18 local neighborhoods with $337,086.59 in grants as part of its Neighborhood Vibrancy Grant Program. This follows nearly $400,000 in grant funding to 28 neighborhoods disbursed earlier this spring. With nearly $750K distributed this year, applications are now closed for the remainder of 2024.

“I am blown away by the response to our revamped Neighborhood Vibrancy Grant Program,” said Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “With a record high number of applicants in 2024, it’s evident that our residents and HOAs are dedicated to improving vibrancy and building community within their neighborhoods. Our additional $650,000 of investment in this program this year has supported 46 Fishers neighborhoods, increasing livability and quality of life in our community.”

In 2024, Mayor Fadness increased the Neighborhood Vibrancy Grant program from $100,000 annually to $750,000. The program provides funding for creative and innovative infrastructure projects that boost the vibrancy of Fishers’ neighborhoods. In addition to the increased funding, Fadness also lowered the financial requirements for the applicants from a 50-50 match to 20-80 of the total cost to encourage more participation and larger-scale projects.
