Energize Our Neighborhoods


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.

  • Project applications will be accepted until January 31, 2019. Learn more

Annual Reporting for Neighborhood Associations

Each year Neighborhood Associations must complete an Annual Report in order to retain their 'active' status with the City of Boise. Reports are due on January 31, 2019 and should be emailed to energize@cityofboise.org

Download the 2019 Annual Report Form to get started.


Community Visioning Events

 A Visioning Event brings neighborhood residents together to develop a shared vision for where they live, work and play. No idea is too big or small - the goal is to think creatively and passionately about future investments that support the neighborhood's shared vision. Over the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2018, the Energize team held multiple Visioning Events in the South Boise Village, West Bench, and West End neighborhoods to collect feedback from residents. 

In the Spring, each neighborhood will have the opportunity to prioritize the projects most important to their areas, and begin moving forward to implement those ideas.
