Neighborhood Initiatives Program

The Neighborhood Initiatives Program (NIP) has improved the quality of life in the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Target Area (PDF)neighborhoods. As such, the NIP was designed to:

  • Improve the physical environments of Bellingham’s neighborhoods, and to increase facilities for neighborhood residents
  • Provide a process that allows residents to identify high priority projects for their neighborhoods, and
  • A system of evaluation to competitively select projects.
