GRANT FUNDED PROJECTS
The City is constantly looking to leverage tax dollars by researching and applying for grants. Grants assist the City with funding projects it may otherwise not be able to afford. In relation to street and safety improvements the City applies for grants through the Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS), Tranportation Improvement District (TID), and the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) among others.
