Invest in Neighborhoods (IIN) works to strengthen, revitalize, and stabilize neighborhood commercial districts around the City by marshaling and deploying resources from City departments and nonprofit partners. Services include loan programs, façade improvement grants and technical assistance for small businesses, all intended to help small businesses thrive, increase neighborhood quality of life, improve overall physical conditions and, in turn, build community capacity. IIN deploys the specific services and resources that are most needed in each district, building stronger neighborhoods through strategic investment in each community’s core commercial corridor. By helping the City think holistically about small business and commercial corridors needs, IIN supports strong and resilient neighborhoods.
