Fairfax County Launches Neighborhood Enhancement Partnership Program

Fairfax County announces a funding opportunity for selected projects through the Neighborhood Enhancement Partnership Program. The program aims to enhance the quality of life in neighborhoods by supporting projects and initiatives that assist in the ongoing effort to encourage increased resident participation in civic engagement and neighborhood beautification efforts.

The goals are to:

  • Promote healthier, safer and cleaner neighborhoods.
  • Enhance neighborhood appearance.
  • Encourage or create a culture of engagement, including facilitating communication and connections in neighborhoods between individuals, youth and families.
  • Build or nurture community leadership within a neighborhood.

A total of $100,000 is available in Fiscal Year (FY) 2009. Awards up to $5,000 will be made on a one-time basis to selected projects. Eligible organizations may submit proposals for multiple projects.

Organizations eligible to receive the award include:

  • Neighborhood or civic associations such as community service clubs or homeowners associations that formally serve a neighborhood or neighborhoods.
  • Nonprofit or faith-based organizations that have an active partnership with a neighborhood/civic association.
  • Organizations located within the unincorporated portions of Fairfax County. The incorporated towns of Vienna, Herndon and Clifton also are eligible.

A pre-application workshop will be held Tuesday, June 3, at 3 p.m. in Conference Room 232 at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. The application forms will be available at the workshop, at Board of Supervisors' district offices or online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/admin/cm/solicitations.htm.
