For questions regarding the Neighborhood Investment Program, please contact us.
The Neighborhood Investment Program is a partnership between the City of Boise and City registered neighborhood associations.
The program funds comprehensive neighborhood plans and capital construction projects to help enrich the lives of our citizens, enhance the identity and quality of life in our neighborhoods and encourage a strong sense of community. The program also funds mini-grants to support neighborhood communication and community-building.
Eligible projects will contribute to strong and healthy neighborhoods through resident involvement and engagement in the identification, planning, and implementation processes. Funded projects will provide a public benefit to all members of the community.
The city’s registered Neighborhood Associations are eligible to apply for project funding. Individuals and community groups must work with their neighborhood association to apply. All projects must be located on public property.
All groups must attend an Neighborhood Investment Workshop and receive Project Manager approval prior to application submission.
Applications for FY22 projects were accepted from Nov. 1, 2020 through Jan. 31, 2021. Funding announcements will be made in Summer 2021.
