Proposed changes to neighborhood plan modification approval process

The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Policy Board has proposed a change to the neighborhood plan modification approval process.

NRP processes require neighborhood organizations to take certain steps in order to modify funding strategies, reallocate funds within approved strategies or create a new strategy. The proposed policy change does the following:

  • Plan modifications over $200,000 will require the approval of the NRP Policy Board
  • Plan modifications $200,000 and under will be administratively approved by the NCR Department Director
  • Updates how broad-based neighborhood support can be demonstrated
  • Allows NRP funds that were placed in a neighborhood priority plan to revert back to a NRP strategy upon closure of the Community Participation Program (CPP)
  • Allows the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department (NCR) to make minor administrative adjustments to plan allocations during contract closeouts
  • Authorizes programmatic documents to reflect these changes
  • Download the document with proposed changes highlighted here
