Target: Facilitate neighborhood entry signage and placemaking. 

Tallahassee has unique and diverse neighborhoods. The City of Tallahassee’s objective is to highlight that uniqueness by facilitating placemaking through entry signage. These projects celebrate the individual communities’ identity, express their culture, and foster social cohesion. Placemaking through entry signage is a way to preserve the unique characteristics of neighborhoods. The City currently operates two grant programs that offer funding for neighborhood signage and other placemaking initiatives.

  • The Neighborhood Partnership Grant (NPG) program is funded by the Tallahassee Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and administered by Neighborhood Affairs, offers grants up to $5000 to neighborhoods located within the Greater Frenchtown/Southside CRA District. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first serve basis for projects that improve physical and public safety conditions within a neighborhood.

  • The Vibrant Neighborhoods Grant (VNG) program, also funds neighborhood signage and small-scale physical improvements, which must be done in the public rights of way or on common property owned/controlled by neighborhood/homeowners’ association. The VNG program is open to all neighborhoods within the City limits.

In FY2023, 7 neighborhoods received funding via the Vibrant Neighborhoods Grant (VNG) and 1 from the Neighborhood Partnership Grant (NPG) to implement neighborhood entry signage and/or placemaking projects in their neighborhoods.
