NCR Proposes Neighborhood Funding Allocations for 2014-16

Wednesday, July 24

In early August, the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department (NCR) will request City Council approval of a three-year funding allocation for the Community Participation Program (CPP). You can see the:

Our plan is to present the 2014-16 CPP allocation to the City Council Committee of the Whole on Thursday, August 1, 2013, and secure final approval by the City Council by Friday, August 16, 2013. We will send formal notification to neighborhood organizations following City Council approval, and your organizations can begin submitting your Community Engagement Plans in September.

We also encourage you to look at the outstanding 2012 annual reports submitted by neighborhood organizations on our website. You will see excellent write-ups of some of the amazing work done by neighborhood leaders like you across the city. You can find these annual reports at:

Background:

In 2010, NCR staff worked with the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission to develop the Community Participation Program Guidelines and Allocation Formula. In our meetings with neighborhood organizations in 2010 and 2011, we heard two clear messages:

(1) Offer a consistent and stable funding program, and

(2) Allocate funding based on the most current available data.

Based on this feedback, we are not proposing any changes to the CPP Guidelines, or to the allocation formula. In accordance with requests from neighborhoods and the Commission, we are updating the datasets where we have the most recently available data.
