URA’s Neighborhood Initiatives Fund (NIF) is Open

We are pleased to announce that the funding round for the Neighborhood Initiatives Fund (NIF) is open!

NIF is a pilot grant program administered by the URA’s Economic Development department. Grants will be awarded through a competitive process in order to:

  • Help unlock the economic and placemaking potential within neighborhoods
  • Support vision-to-action community investment strategies that build an equitable Pittsburgh
  • Formalize collaborative partnerships across the City

The Program is intended to assist nonprofit and community-based organizations with neighborhood-scale projects that improve quality of life and maintain the neighborhood as a desirable place to live. These projects include efforts that encourage investment through vacant property reclamation and stewardship, historic preservation, brownfield redevelopment, public infrastructure improvements, and/or other eligible efforts. Nonprofit organizations with for-profit development partners are also eligible to apply.

Grant Applications are due October 1, 2019.
