The OCR also offers the following programs over the year:
Neighborhood Home Beautification Program
This program was created to provide funding assistance for visible enhancements to residential properties in the CCRT areas. Examples of eligible improvements include: exterior painting, exterior doors and windows, mail boxes, fencing repair and lawn improvements.
Neighborhood Street Lighting Program (NSL)
This program was created to provide funding for the installation and maintenance of citizen petitioned streetlights at approved locations along County owned and maintained roadways in designated CCRT areas that experience above-average nighttime criminal activity, as well as unsafe pedestrian and vehicular mobility conditions.
Resident Education to Action Program (REAP)
This program is a six-week, hands-on educational course designed to help community members develop skills to feel confident and to participate in making meaningful decisions about the future of their community. The program encourages citizens to be knowledgeable neighbors about how County government works and its available community resources and services that can be used for neighborhood improvement efforts. REAP supports the formation of neighborhood associations and empowers neighborhoods to seek for themselves a better quality of life that is citizen-driven and focused.
