Types of Projects Timeline 

Funding is available through the Public Project Community Support Fund (PPCSF) for projects and programs addressing neighborhood stabilization and/or community outreach for underserved and/or underrepresented groups in neighborhoods around the New Bern Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor and Dix Edge area. See the eligible geographic area (Eligibility Area) on the map below.

The funding must support capacity building opportunities in existing communities. The goal of the PPCSF is to preserve sense of place and promote neighborhood stability during BRT corridor construction. Local organizations serving the Eligibility Area are encouraged to submit a Letter of Interest (LOI) to partner with the City to serve these communities.

Types of Projects

The City will partner with local non-profit organizations (501c) that represent the demographic characteristics of the community they work in (see Eligibility Area map above). These organizations must have experience working with traditionally underserved or underrepresented groups, have deep networks in communities where they operate, and have a high degree of trust among community members. Agencies may be eligible for grants of $25,000 or more from the City of Raleigh.

The City provides funding to support community organizations serving the Eligibility Area. Efforts should provide neighborhood stabilization and/or community outreach programs including:

  • effective engagement in the Eligibility Area;
  • financial capacity building and planning (i.e., consumer education, credit counseling);
  • predatory property acquisition prevention;
  • community-based volunteer home repair; or
  • other identified community needs.

 501(c) organizations wishing to partner with the City must submit a Letter of Interest


  • Letters of Interest must be submitted by 4 p.m. (ET) on March 24
  • Letters of Interest will be evaluated by City staff and programs recommended for funding are anticipated to be announced on May 2.
