WR2020 offers several Neighborhood Activity grants for residents of Wheat Ridge. Get to know your neighbors and help tidy up your neighborhood with the help of the Wheat Ridge 2020 Dumpster Days grant program. Dumpster Days is your chance to get your neighbors to work together and fill a dumpster with all of the accumulated items on your property and in the neighborhood. WR2020 will provide a dumpster for one weekend with approved applications.
The Neighborhood Block Party Grant program is another program to help neighbors get to know one another and to strengthen Wheat Ridge neighborhoods. Accepted applicants will be notified and will be reimbursed for up to $150 of the costs related to the block party. Alcoholic beverages are not reimbursable and receipts for all requested reimbursements must be provided.
Visit the Wheat Ridge 2020 website for additional information and to download an application for either of these grant programs.

Wheat Ridge Revive the Greenbelt! is a community forestry project that uses strategic tree selection, planting, and maintenance to restore and revitalize the Clear Creek waterway in the Wheat Ridge Greenbelt. The project site, just south of Prospect Park, faces multiple environmental challenges including invasive species, degraded waterways, tree loss from the 2009 hailstorm, low tree survival, and threatened habitat of the native Ute Ladies’-Tresses Orchid species. On April 27th, Saturday, 9AM – 12 PM, the Institute for Environmental Solutions (IES), the City of Wheat Ridge, and our project partners will plant new trees along the riverbank to improve the environment and optimize the many benefits of trees. This tree planting will restore plant and wildlife habitats, welcoming birds, fish, and other wildlife under the canopies. These trees will help the City of Wheat Ridge manage stormwater and pollution, restore degraded riverbanks, and increase the beauty of the Greenbelt.
For more information or to volunteer, contact IES at href="Solutionsi4esorg">Solutionsi4esorg or by phone at 720-295-4437.
