Host a neighborhood block party and get reimbursed up to $200! You can use the Neighborhood Block Party Grant to help cover party-related expenses such as food, paper goods, party favors, and to hire entertainment/performers.
You’ll first need to fill out a Block Party Notification form with our city clerk at least five days before your party. Then to be eligible for the $200 reimbursement, you’ll have to fill out a grant application. Don’t forget to save your receipts!
Visit merriam.org/blockparty for more information and to fill out both forms. Call David Easley with the Community Development Department at 913-322-5520 with any questions. Applications are accepted through Oct. 15.
