Neighborhood Partners Fund Grant Applications
Neighborhood Partners Fund grant applications are being accepted online now. The Neighborhood Partners Fund (NPF) is designed to assist in improving the livability of city neighborhoods through community-matched funding for neighborhood improvement projects. The NPF program grants up to $5,000, which must be matched by the neighborhood with cash, volunteer labor, donated supplies, equipment or professional services. When residents volunteer for improvement projects, they meet their neighbors and work side by side. Communication improves, relationships are formed and community spirit is developed. Such is the impact of this type of small grants neighborhood funding. Applications must be submitted before midnight Thursday, April 17, 2014.
Several workshops to assist prospective applicants have been scheduled. See the list of workshops and all the program details online. Call (702) 229-6681 or e-mail to email@example.com to register for one of the workshops.
