Energize Our Neighborhoods supports the work of Neighborhood Associations, striving to build capacity and spark creativity in their community engagement efforts and events. This program provides small amounts of funding to enable neighborhood associations to lead livability projects, offer educational programming for residents, host community events, and support the administration of the association.
Only Neighborhood Associations are eligible to apply for these funds. A maximum of $2,500 may be awarded to an association each fiscal year. Any improvements/events/resources funded through this program must be located on public property and free and accessible to all residents. This program is competitive; applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with evaluations and funding determinations made three times each year.
