Project Reinvest: Neighborhoods

Funding Opportunity

Project Reinvest: Neighborhoods will provide grant funding to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to help stabilize and revitalize distressed communities suffering from the direct and/or indirect effects of the foreclosure crisis. Proposed projects should support and further existing multi-faceted, place-based initiatives working to transform communities.
A total of $26.5 million in non-federal funds is available through this grant program. Approximately 53 awards will be made through a national competitive process.

In order to meet a diverse set of populations and to aim toward proportional distribution of funds across eligible communities, Project Reinvest: Neighborhoods anticipates making awards on a basis proportional to the number of eligible census tracts and/or applications per community type as follows:
Area Serving
Number of Eligible Census Tracts
Rural 20 percent
Suburban 40 percent
Urban 40 percent
Total 100 percent
The anticipated performance period, May 2017- October 2018 (or as stipulated in the grant agreement), includes project implementation, progress monitoring, grant reporting and evaluation. All grant funded activities must be completed within the 18-month performance period as outlined in the grant agreement.
