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.

The Planning, Zoning and Building Department provides community grant opportunities that support neighborhood improvements and increase community engagement. Eligibility for these grants requires a level of participation and investment from the property owner.
