Public Project Community Support Funding Is Still Available!

Funding Opportunity for Local Non-Profits

The City of Raleigh is accepting letters of interest for the second round of funding for the Public Project Community Support Fund until Friday, March 24. 

Program Details

The Public Project Community Support Fund (PPCSF) was created to provide support to businesses and residents within the eligibility area to offset the impacts of large-scale public investments. The first round of PPCSF funding was administered in February 2022. For this second round, $125,000 remains available. 

The City is seeking to partner with community non-profit organizations that:

  • represent a community’s demographic characteristics;
  • have experience working with traditionally underserved and underrepresented groups; and,
  • have deep networks in communities where they operate and a high degree of trust among community members.

This flexible funding source could be used to help with community engagement, financial capacity building, predatory property acquisition, home repair, and more! For full program details and eligibility requirements, view the full request for letters of interest.

Submit your cover letter and narrative no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2023 by email to Christopher “C.J.” Valenzuela, Public-Private Partnerships Coordinator at with a subject line of “PPCSF – Round 2”.
