Grants

Wellington is committed to the sustainability of our Great Hometown and the quality of life enjoyed by all of our residents. One of the many value-added elements to living in Wellington includes property values, which are in part upheld by Wellington standards. These standards, along with great schools, parks, and safe neighborhoods are a few of the many reasons individuals and families choose to live and invest in our Great Hometown.

Community Services provides a number of community grant opportunities that support neighborhood improvement and increase community engagement. Eligibility for these grants requires a level of participation and investment from the property owner. Currently, Community Services offers two grant opportunities.
