Neighborhood Development 2021 Open Streets Grant

The 2021 Open Streets Grant will fund community-based development organizations (CBDOs) to support, operate, maintain, and enhance DOT-designated Open Street locations on commercial corridors. The Open Streets program allows communities to embrace new public space, drive economic recovery, and allow for a range of car-free activities that support local businesses.

To support existing Open Street partners, and help seed new Open Street partnerships in the communities that need it most, SBS Neighborhood Development is launching the first round of the Open Streets Grant to provide CBDOs with the resources to support, operate, maintain, and enhance DOT-designated Open Street locations in business districts, including activities such as street management, cleanliness and beautification, streetscape enhancements, district marketing, and programming. For purposes of this grant, a commercial corridor is defined as having a minimum of 3 storefront businesses located on the Open Street. View a map of commercial storefronts here.
