Neighborhood Partnership Initiative Offers Grants to Neighborhood Groups

February 8, 2008 - The Neighborhood Partnership Initiative (NPI) program is designed to support innovative and effective partnerships that involve new constituencies, solve problems, and improve the community for everybody. Grants up to $10,000 will be awarded to successful applicants.

Partnerships applying to NPI must include at least one government-recognized neighborhood organization (Minneapolis Neighborhood Group or St. Paul District Council), and at least one youth, immigrant, or arts organization with nonprofit status. The neighborhood organization should be the lead partner.
