FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — October 14, 2021

Does your Elkhart County neighborhood need a boost?

Vibrant Neighborhoods can make it happen

Is your neighborhood full of potential? Just waiting for the right project to get neighbors excited and pulling together?

The Vibrant Neighborhoods initiative of Vibrant Communities is here to help.

Neighborhoods are the lifeblood of Elkhart County’s communities. From getting together for backyard barbecues, helping each other out while raking leaves, or just watching our kids grow up together, our neighbors often become our best friends.

You may be awarded a $500 micro-grant to fund your neighborhood activity. So far in 2021, more than 20 neighborhoods in Elkhart County have done picnics, kids’ activities, and clean-up days with the help of a Vibrant Neighborhoods grant.
