Neighborhood Grants Program (NGP)
The Neighborhood Grants Program is one of the most popular and successful programs at the Community Foundation. Groups throughout Monterey County may apply for a $500 to $4,000 grant for a project or series of activities that improves their neighborhood. Started in 1997 with a grant from the Packard Foundation, the Neighborhood Grants Program is now fully integrated into the ongoing operations of the Community Foundation. Nearly $700,000 has been awarded since the start of the program.
