Neighborhood Network Fund

Eligibility requirements, forms and deadlines for neighborhood organization funding through the Neighborhood Network Fund.

About the Neighborhood Network Fund

The Neighborhood Network Fund supports the City's network of 70 neighborhood organizations. It's one of four funding programs that came from the Neighborhoods 2020 community engagement process.

Eligible organizations

Organizations have to meet the requirements to be a City-recognized neighborhood organization to apply. These requirements are explained in the Neighborhood Network Fund application. We review this recognition at least once every three years.

Only one organization can represent a single geographic area.

If your organization represents only a specific part of the neighborhood, like a business council or homeowners association, you are not eligible to apply.

Eligible uses

You can use the Neighborhood Network Fund for your neighborhood organization's administrative costs, placemaking activities, community organizing, communications and other activities. Download the application and guidelines for more details.
