The Neighborhood Activation Fund is made possible by American Rescue Plan dollars appropriated by Cincinnati City Council, which will provide resources to support community projects and events in neighborhoods, with the purpose of restoring community fabric and rebuilding relationships that have been suffered due to the pandemic. Eligibility criteria are outlined in the application below.

We are now partnering with Invest in Neighborhoods to manage and facilitate the program on behalf of the City.  Applicants should apply directly through Invest in Neighborhoods. Visit their website for more information here.  If you have any questions, please contact Invest in Neighborhoods email at
