Neighborhood Programs was established by the City Council in 2000 to strengthen Chandler's neighborhoods through partnerships, programs and services. The programs foster community building by facilitating neighborhood-level engagement, empowering residents through training and development, assisting those in need and collaborating with outside organizations to connect residents with additional resources. Services available to Chandler residents and neighborhoods include neighborhood grants, tool lending, educational classes and ongoing volunteer opportunities.
Neighborhood Grant Program
The Neighborhood Grant Program is open to all Chandler neighborhoods that participate in the Neighborhood Registration Program. Grant projects are evaluated and selected based on a series of criteria including neighborhood benefit, resident involvement and financial need.
Many benefits are available to registered neighborhoods, including grant funding and assistance with community organizing. Currently, Chandler has more than 300 registered neighborhoods and nearly 1,600 neighborhood leaders.
Neighborhood Programs offers the HOA Academy to provide residents and board members of homeowner's associations with the know-how, tools and resources to effectively lead their neighborhoods including an HOA Academy, Neighborhood College and the Mayor's HOA Roundtable.
