Neighborhood Grants 2020

The Community Foundation of Northern Illinois and HomeStart will accept applications between February 10 and May 1, 2020 for the Neighborhood Grants Program. **Please note - this deadline was extended to May 1.** For more information about the grants click here

HomeStart looks for projects that:

  • Encourage partnerships between residents, businesses, non-profits and institutions (e.g., schools) within the neighborhood;
  • Are generated, led, and executed by residents of the neighborhood to the extent possible; and
  • Build on the assets existing in the neighborhood, including using the skills of residents, involving youth or working with an existing neighborhood group.

The maximum amount granted by the Neighborhood Grants Program is $2,500.

Learn more about the project guidelines and get your questions answered on at  our Neighborhood Grant Informational Session. We will be holding this session on Tuesday, March 10 at 5:30p at Prairie Street Brewhouse, in the Peacock room.  Please RSVP by calling 815-962-2011.

We envision thriving neighborhoods where everyone has equal access to quality housing opportunities.
