HYDE PARK — There’s still time for people with an idea to improve neighborhoods on the south lakefront to get $3,000 to make it happen.

The deadline for the South East Chicago Commission’s neighborhood enhancement grant program is coming up on Friday.

Applications are still being accepted from park advisory councils, religious congregations, community groups and others who have ideas to fix up parts of Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, Woodlawn and Washington Park.

Grants in previous years have helped fund projects like a fence for the 62nd Street garden, a new kiosk at Cornell Park and plants for the William Hill Garden in Woodlawn.

Projects must be visible from the street and must be completed between July 1 and Nov. 1.

More information and application instructions are available on the commission’s website.
