Neighborhood Investment Program

The Neighborhood Investment Program is a partnership between the City of Boise and City registered neighborhood associations. The program funds comprehensive neighborhood plans and capital construction projects to help enrich the lives of our citizens, enhance the identity and quality of life in our neighborhoods and encourage a strong sense of community. The program also funds mini-grants to support neighborhood communication and community-building.
