Description  [hide this]

The Neighborhood Partners Fund grant (NPF) is designed to assist in improving the quality of life in City of Las Vegas neighborhoods.  The objectives of NPF are:

  • Increase participation and cooperation among neighborhood residents, businesses, and the city.
  • Support emerging and established city-registered Neighborhood Associations working on significant neighborhood issues and concerns through achievable projects.
  • Empower registered neighborhood-based associations to effectively plan and implement programs that address neighborhood needs.

The program grants up to $5,000 to registered neighborhood-based associations for self-help projects that will improve the physical, public safety, cultural, recreational, or educational conditions of their neighborhood. Grants are available for projects that address a meaningful neighborhood need that improves the community.

In order to qualify, registered neighborhood-based associations will have to match the City’s contribution with any combination of volunteer time, donated goods and/or services and/or financial contributions, provided that each match element is truly needed to complete the project.  Projects are required to take place within the boundaries of the City of Las Vegas and the applying neighborhood association must involve neighborhood residents in all phases of the project.  Funding must not be used to fund a neighborhood association’s operating budget or other City services.  The City of Las Vegas is not responsible for repairing or up keeping any project.  The neighborhood association will assume all responsibility. 

All registered neighborhood-based associations are eligible to receive funds provided that the following conditions are met.  A neighborhood-based association is one with a majority of its members residing or operating businesses in a defined geographical area commonly recognized as a neighborhood, and whose purpose is to improve the quality of life in that area. 

The association must be registered with the City of Las Vegas.  Please contact the Department of Neighborhood Services at 702.229.2346 or alkilponen@lasvegasnevada.gov if you are unsure whether or not your neighborhood is registered with the city or if you would like to discuss whether or not your project may be eligible.
