Request for Proposals (RFP) - Community Enhancement Grant

The City of Raleigh Community Enhancement Grant program awards funds annually through a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process. Nonprofits can apply for funds to provide innovative public services to low- and moderate-income Raleigh residents and neighborhoods. No grantee can be awarded funds more than two consecutive years. As federal funds are used, agencies must demonstrate the capacity to meet federal documentation requirements if awarded a grant.

The City of Raleigh Community Enhancement Grant Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2023-2024 program year beginning July 1, 2023 is now available. 

Only applications from nonprofits with 501(c)(3) designation from the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be reviewed. The deadline for applications was Tuesday, Jan. 10.

This will be a single-year funded pilot program. The implementing agency must have the ability to quickly scale up to launch the work.
