The City of Jackson is excited to announce the launch of the Neighborhood Improvement Project grant, offered through the "Love Your Block" program. This grant opportunity empowers our residents and community groups to lead projects that enhance the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

The grant will support projects aimed at:
