The goal of the NEGP is to promote leadership, independence, and overall improvement within individuals and their community through enrichment projects. The Neighborhood Enrichment Grant Program brings about new changes: tiered funding, no required matches, no required volunteer hours, new project categories, increased project eligibility, more planning resources, and an easier application process. As of June 30th, 2022, the Neighborhood Matching Grant will be terminated.
The Neighborhood Enrichment Grant Program (NEGP) was designed to provide neighborhood organizations funding to promote leadership, independence, and overall improvement within communities through enrichment projects. These projects are to improve the quality of life of all residents within the applicant’s neighborhood. This is different from the Neighborhood Matching Grant that the Neighborhood Improvement Program has provided over the last several years. Unlike the Neighborhood Matching Grant, the Neighborhood Enrichment Grant Program does not require a match or volunteer hours.
- The Neighborhood Enrichment Grant Program introduces funding tiers: Tier 1 and Tier 2. Tier 1 funding is for neighborhood organizations that live outside low-to-moderate income areas.
- Their funding is maxed at $1,500 per fiscal year.
- Tier 2 funding is for neighborhood organizations that live within Low-to-Medium Income (LMI) areas.
- Their funding is maxed at $2,500 per fiscal year.
- Any neighborhood-based organization located in Richland County (incorporated or unincorporated) is an eligible applicant. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Neighborhood Associations
- Homeowners Associations
- Property Owners Associations
- Other like neighborhood-based associations and related groups
- These organizations must be open to anyone that lives in the neighborhood (renters or owners) regardless of race, creed, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or physical and mental disability and must actively seek membership from everyone in the neighborhood. To be considered an official neighborhood organization, applicants must have: officers (required at minimum of a President, Secretary and Treasurer), established neighborhood boundaries, by laws, a tax identification number, IRS W-9 Form, and bank account dedicated to said organization.
