The Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP) is a revitalizing plan for older neighborhoods that provides Paint, Landscape, Driveway, Roof and Trash removal assistance to homeowners in adopted Focus Neighborhoods. Even rental homes can be eligible for this program. This is a grant program and in most circumstances the money does not have to be paid back. Currently, the City has designated two Focus Neighborhoods where the NIP program is underway. This is a limited-time program and once a Focus Neighborhood has been canvassed it will be closed, so do not let the opportunity pass you by to take advantage of this great program.
