People & communities Neighbourhood investment funds

What are neighbourhood investment funds

We are supporting local people by encouraging groups to apply for a neighbourhood investment fund (NIF). These are funds available to communities to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

£20,000 of neighbourhood investment funding is available to every area (ward) in Manchester each year - to help groups carry out events and activities that benefit people in their local neighbourhood.

The fund can be used for many things including:

  • supporting groups of residents back into employment or training;
  • establishing new community groups;
  • supporting established groups, new groups and delivering local projects;
  • clean ups, planting, recycling and reducing waste projects; or
  • other activities important to your neighbourhood.
