Administered by the Community Capital Fund (CCF), the Neighborhoods Rising Fund (NRF) is a funding collaborative that provides grants for high-impact, innovative community projects and neighborhood revitalization initiatives, which help build stronger, better connected and more effective neighborhood organizations in low- to moderate-income areas, now throughout the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
The Neighborhoods Rising Fund (NRF) is a grant program for revitalizing neighborhoods. The NRF relaunched on March 22, 2021, thanks to a donation from H&R Block (NYSE: HRB) as the primary corporate partner to bring more revitalization to neighborhoods throughout Greater Kansas City.
The relaunched NRF will support an expanded geographic area, an increased award cap for its one-year grants, and new, two-year award options.
- The NRF’s newly expanded geographic area includes Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass counties in Missouri, as well as Wyandotte, Johnson, and Leavenworth counties in Kansas, with a specific focus on historically underinvested neighborhoods in these seven counties, which is also CCF’s newly broadened service area.
- The award cap for this year’s one-year grants increased from $3,000 to $5,000, giving neighborhoods with additional capacity an opportunity to expand their programming.
- Also, this year the NRF includes two-year award options of up to $5,000 per year for applicants that have satisfactorily completed and reported on any prior NRF-funded projects.
