Beautify Hoover Grant Program
As land in Hoover continues to develop and developed property continues to age, it is important for Hoover’s citizens to support city-wide beautification efforts through landscaping and enhancement of natural areas. A primary objective of the Hoover Beautification Board is improving Hoover’s overall, aesthetic appearance and environmental quality. In pursuit of that objective, the Board administers the “Beautify Hoover” grant program each fiscal year. This program provides guidance and supplemental funding for landscape installation and/or landscape enhancement on public property within the Hoover city limits. Through the grant program, the Board seeks to partner with community-based organizations located within the Hoover city limits, to improve the appearance of public space such as neighborhood entrances, school campuses, police and fire stations, public parks and facilities, etc. By developing partnerships, facilitating projects and coalescing citizens around a common goal, the Board believes this grant program will help to create a healthier, more livable and more beautiful City of Hoover.
