State Farm Neighborhood Assist

Do you want to be part of something great? Do you enjoy helping others? Are you a US citizen? If you answered yes, then this opportunity is for you.
People across the US have an exciting opportunity to help change their neighborhoods for the better, through State Farm Neighborhood Assist. This philanthropic program awards 40 different causes a $25,000 grant. Anyone in the US can submit a cause beginning March 9 through March 30. Then voters will decide which community improvement projects most deserve to win the big grants. 

Coming back for its fourth year, State Farm Neighborhood Assist asks all Americans to identify causes that would help make their neighborhoods safer, stronger and better-educated. Let's face it, we all know what would make our neighborhood a better place and now is your chance to voice that! Up to 4,000 causes will be accepted for this promotion. The State Farm Youth Advisory Board (YAB) will then narrow down the field, using a scoring rubric system to identify the top 200 submissions. It seems like a lot, but for nationwide US, it really isn't. Then, the public will then have a chance to vote 10 times a day from May 14 through June 3 for their favorite causes from the list of finalists. The 40 causes that receive the most votes will win a $25,000 grant each. The nominations and votes will be accepted exclusively through a free Facebook app which you can access below.

Key Dates for State Farm Neighborhood Assist :
  • March 9 – March 29: Submit causes, exclusively through Facebook
  • March 30 – May 13: YAB identifies top 200 finalists
  • May 14 – June 3: Vote for causes, exclusively through Facebook
  • June 16: State Farm announces winners


Since the program began in 2011, State Farm has awarded $3 million to 120 neighborhoods across North America. They support a wide variety of causes including fighting childhood hunger, helping homeless veterans, revitalizing parks, improving literacy and offering athletic programs for children with disabilities. Think about it, this program can help clean up your streets.




“State Farm Neighborhood Assist helps individuals be the face of change in their communities,” said Kellie Clapper, State Farm Assistant Vice President. “From identifying an important cause to rallying your community to vote for it, this program is all about neighbors helping neighbors.”
