Applications have opened for a program that provides funds to San Francisco residents to spruce up their neighborhoods.

Through San Francisco Beautiful's Neighborhood Grants initiative, residents can receive up to $5,000 "to beautify, or to enhance the livability of some part of the city," the organization says on its website.

Previous beautification projects awarded by San Francisco Beautiful include tree plantings, sidewalk steam cleanings and stairway decorating.

The organization will begin reviewing applications on Sep. 19, and projects accepted for grants can expect to receive funds soon after, a spokesperson for San Francisco Beautiful said. The organization plans to award 12 grants to complete projects in 2024, before starting a new round of grants in 2025.

In 2019, the last time the initiative was held, San Francisco Beautiful awarded 28 individuals and organizations with grants.
