Community Capital Fund


2016 Neighborhoods Rising Fund Grant Recipients Announced

The NRF is a funding collaborative that provides grants up to $3,000 for high impact community projects and neighborhood revitalization initiatives that help build stronger and more effective neighborhood organizations in low- to moderate-income areas throughout the Greater Kansas City region. The NRF is managed by the Community Capital Fund (CCF) and Greater Kansas City Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC).

The NRF is the only source of funds for many neighborhood associations (and organizations working with neighborhoods) to carry out community projects and capacity building initiatives.
Improving the livability of neighborhoods (especially in the urban core) is essential for the vitality of the entire city. The projects funded by the NRF represent the many ways that neighborhoods are working to improve their own communities and quality of life.
