The Neighborhood Grants Program exists to:
- Encourage and support the work of neighborhood-based groups and organizations trying to preserve and/or improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods;
- Promote resident participation and leadership in neighborhood-based groups/organizations;
- Invest in and build on the existing strengths and assets of the region’s neighborhoods; and
- Promote civic pride in our community.
The Neighborhood Grant Program is a collaboration between the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois and NW HomeStart.
