Neighborhood Implementation Renewal Grants (NIRGs) are designed to help select Regional Foundation Implementation Grantees continue momentum in their comprehensive neighborhood revitalization initiatives for sustainability and long term impact.
Neighborhood Implementation Renewal Grants are awarded on a highly competitive basis to Implementation Grantees who are close to the completion of their current grant period, and whose neighborhood revitalization initiatives have potential for high impact.
Grant size: Each Implementation grantee is eligible for one renewal grant at up to $500,000 each for a single grantee and $825,000 for a collaborative.
Selection process: Grants are approved through a competitive review process. For more information on this process, see “How to Apply.”
Evaluation process: All Implementation Renewal Grantees participate in robust evaluation processes designed to inform the neighborhood stakeholders of the project's performance, enhance collaboration, and assess the overall impact of the implementation initiatives.
The evaluation includes:
- A second systematic survey of residents about the quality of life
- Quarterly reporting on agreed upon milestones and deliverables
- Assessing the change in select neighborhood indicators
