The Omaha Community Foundation’s Omaha Neighborhood Grants Program (ONGP) is a community-building resource available in Omaha.
For a group to be eligible for the grant, it only needs to be located within Omaha and registered in the Neighborhood Directory. The grant award is up to $5000.
One Omaha is available to help neighborhood groups through the grant writing process in the following ways:
One Omaha Visioning Sessions use asset-based community development strategies to generate and organize project ideas for grants and reach consensus around project ideas.
These can be scheduled August – January during weekdays, weekday evenings, or on weekend days. Reach out to Alex O’Hanlon at email@example.com to schedule a visioning session, or if you have any questions.
After your group is clear on project ideas, you can schedule small group meetings for technical support as you work your way through the application. This option is available from January – February. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting.
Our grant writing workshops will be held in November, January, and February, one time each month. This page will be updated with details soon.
Areas we train on include:
We will be holding Open Office Hours virtually on Zoom and in person at different locations throughout Omaha on the first and third Thursdays in September, October, and November.
During Open Office Hours, folks can drop in and ask any questions they have about the ONGP grant cycle.
