The Neighborhood Council of Iowa City, a collaboration of neighborhood associations, is also staffed by the Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator. The Neighborhood Council works as one unit in an effort to address common issues or concerns of all neighborhoods.

The Neighborhood Council also oversees and implements the Program for Improving Neighborhoods (PIN) grant program.


PIN Grant

The grant program, which was provided $20,000 in Fiscal Year 19, is available to neighborhood associations to make improvements in their neighborhood.

Maximum grant amount is $5,000, and the application process occurs in the spring of every year with funds available July 1. Contact Marcia Bollinger for more information or call 319-356-5237.

The following are sample documents for the PIN grant program. Updates will occur annually in January for the next funding year.
