Restore SGF – Block Challenge Grant Program

Restore SGF is a nonprofit community initiative to improve housing conditions and raise residential property values in Springfield’s historic neighborhoods.

Restore SGF recently debuted its first program, the Block Challenge Grant Program. Restore SGF’s Block Challenge Grant Program encourages reinvestment and improvement to neighborhood conditions in Springfield’s historic neighborhoods, by reimbursing neighbors up to $2,500 to fix exterior maintenance issues, get a fresh paint job, add curb appeal or make other exterior improvements, by working in teams to create a chain reaction of improvements. 

Currently, the neighborhoods eligible for the program are Woodland Heights, Grant Beach, Doling Park east of Robberson Avenue, Fassnight, and Meador Park east of National Avenue.
