Bernalillo County: Neighborhood Outreach Grant ProgramDeadline: September 8, 2017
The Neighborhood Outreach Grant Program was created to assist neighborhood groups to continue participation and outreach to residents of Bernalillo County. As part of this grant program, Bernalillo County Neighborhood Coordination promotes collaboration between the county and the community. Community building is core to project success. The process of bringing people together and building relationships is as important as project results. Projects must:
- Occur within Bernalillo County
- Provide a public benefit
- Be free and open to all residents within neighborhood association boundaries
- Emphasize self‐help with project ideas initiated, planned, and implemented by the neighbors and community members who will themselves be impacted by the project
- Demonstrate community match
Amount: A total of $25,000 or less is expected to be available for this program per fiscal year. The maximum request amount is up to $2,500 per organization. Matches can be in the form of cash, in-kind contributions, volunteer labor, donated materials, or donated professional services.
Eligibility: Neighborhood associations and coalitions within Bernalillo County that are on the City of Albuquerque or Bernalillo County’s list of Recognized Neighborhood Associations.
Note: A non-mandatory conference will be held on August 22, 2017.
