The former 2012 and earlier Innovative Grant program was different, but it may still be enlightening to readers. Past years' grants primarily focused on street and sidewalk projects (streetscape, lighting, traffic calming), beautification projects (removal of blighted conditions, plantings, signage), and special needs projects (handicap access, security lighting) in residential areas.  To see descriptions of the actual projects approved by Neighborhood Councils and the City Council for funding under this program since 2005, click here (a 37-page PDF file). To see the actual grant applications for the 28 projects that were funded in 2010, click here. (a 4-page PDF with links to 28 other PDF files).
