We award Neighborhood Planning Grants and Neighborhood Implementation Grants to support long-term, resident-driven neighborhood revitalization. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children and families living in low-income communities in Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware by concentrating resources on comprehensive, neighborhood-based economic and community development initiatives.

Neighborhood Implementation Grants support comprehensive community development projects that target specific neighborhoods. The community development project must be based on a current resident-driven neighborhood plan and can be used for program costs only.
Single grantees. Grants range from $100,000 to $750,000 and are disbursed over 5 years.
Collaboratives. Grants range from $100,000 to $1.25 million, and are disbursed over 5 years. Learn more about applying as a collaborative.
Our evaluation process includes:
