Neighborhood Opportunity Fund

 

Since 1976, City Council has provided grants for public service programs proposed by nonprofit and neighborhood service organizations through the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund (NOF) program. This program, which is a part of the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, provides funds for public services to improve the quality of life of low-income residents in the City of Detroit. The program currently awards grants in the areas of Education, Seniors, Recreation, Health, and Public Safety.
