INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Groups that want to spruce up their Indianapolis neighborhoods can now apply for funding through the city’s Neighborhood Grants program.
The program was announced Monday by Mayor Joe Hogsett, the Indianapolis County City Council and the Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center.

A second round of grants will be open for applications in October.
