Fostering a Raleigh for All

Making investments in community

With growth comes change and challenges. Raleigh is bringing some large public projects that will help manage growth. One such change is Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which is an investment that will bring faster more reliable transit. To offset some of the challenges, Raleigh has established a Community Fund that will help people living around large public investments.

The City of Raleigh has allocated $125,000 to fund projects that enhance and strengthen neighborhoods. Neighborhood organizations within the designated area can submit their ideas for projects to be funded by the Neighborhood Initiative Fund (NIF). As an example, the projects can be physical improvements or activities that bring the community together. The maximum amount per project is $15,000 and must be completed by June 30, 2023.

Applications for Neighborhood Initiative Funds are now being accepted. Eligible neighborhoods are along the New Bern and Southern BRT Corridors, and Dix Park. Visit the Neighborhood Initiative Funds web page to learn more about the application process and criteria.
