Community Improvement Grants

Community Improvement Grants

Did you know by simply improving the area around your business or neighborhood you’ve added value to our community? How does your company envision their environmental footprint? Does your civic group, church or school have a grand, green space idea or thoughts on a litter reduction strategy? Projects as easy as beautifying an area, planting trees or urging folks to reduce and reuse before they recycle are simple solutions to heighten quality of life in Longview.

Applications will be reviewed within 90 days of submission and grants are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.
