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:
- June – August 2014: Neighborhood comment on draft guidelines
- August 2014: NCEC finalizes guidelines
- September 2014: City Council review of guidelines
- October – December 2014: Application period
- Early 2015: Grants Awarded
Please provide written comments on the guidelines by Monday, August 18, 2014.
