Habitat for Humanity of Utah County oversees Provo City’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program and is working with Provo neighborhood leaders to engage and train residents and assist with exterior painting, planting and other beautification activities.

As part of this program, the local Habitat affiliate administers funding from Provo’s CDBG Neighborhood Revitalization Grant. Grant funds can be used for neighborhood driven projects, such as painting, planting, and clean-up projects, community gardens, safety campaigns, and sidewalk repair and replacement, in Provo CDBG eligible neighborhoods (refer to map). Habitat also hosts a Healthy Neighborhoods Training twice a year. The Healthy Neighborhoods training is designed to help residents and stakeholders engage in creating a neighborhood of choice in which they want to live, work, and play. The training explores the elements of a healthy neighborhood and the importance of resident involvement in developing and maintaining neighborhoods of choice.

During its first year of program administration, Habitat has assisted residents with planting and fence installation projects in Provo’s Maeser Neighborhood, partnered with Community Action Services and Food Bank and Provo Parks and Recreation to develop the TyeRay Community Garden in Provo’s Rivergrove Neighborhood, and introduced Provo’s first ever Mobile Tool Library.

Visit the Provo Mobile Tool Library Page for details.
