Neighborhood Renewal Initiative Grant Program
The Neighborhood Enterprise Division offers grant funding in cycles or periods for the Neighborhood Renewal Initiative Program, funded through the county’s Community Development Block Grant Program. Neighborhood organizations located within the boundaries of one of the county’s Community Redevelopment Areas are eligible to apply for up to $5,000 for projects that promote community and volunteer-based redevelopment efforts in a targeted neighborhood. Projects up to $500 require no match, while projects exceeding $500 will require a match of cash, in-kind contributions, and/or volunteer labor. Past applicants have completed neighborhood beautification projects, neighborhood signs, and house numbering projects. Please inquire about program application deadlines.
