We all have things we love about our neighborhoods — and things that, well, unite the entire block in frustration.

Good thing there’s a way for community members to propose projects to help neighborhoods thrive. The Department of Public Works is now accepting applications from community-based organizations for the 2024 Indianapolis Neighborhood Infrastructure Partnership, which helps residents play an active role in the development of their communities.

A few projects that you may recognize that were completed in 2023, thanks to successful partnerships, include construction on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail (at a cost of $17.3 million) and improvements made to Broad Ripple Avenue (at a cost of $6.9 million).

The program also released data on the outcomes of this year’s work:

  • Businesses positively affected: 145
  • Homes positively affected: 1,137
  • Motorists positively affected: 115,313

Want to propose a project? Applications for the program will be accepted through Friday, Feb. 16.
