Community Innovation Fund

The Community Innovation Fund is intended to provide grants to neighborhood organizations to foster innovative and locally-relevant approaches to City identified goals. Scheduled to begin in early 2015, the program will make $300,000 available in grants to neighborhoods for a two-year period.

The draft guidelines were developed by the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission (NCEC) after a series of nine listening sessions with neighborhood organizations held in early 2014.

The general schedule for the program is as follows:
