Neighborhood Allies (formerly Pittsburgh Partnership for Neighborhood Development)

Founded in 1983 as the Pittsburgh Partnership for Neighborhood Development, Neighborhood Allies focuses on creating vibrant communities in partnership with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC)—together investing $100 million in Pittsburgh neighborhoods and leveraging nearly $300 million in other funds.  In 2014, the organization launched as a “new and improved 21st century community development intermediary” with 3 core goals:  1) creating community partnerships; 2) connecting distressed communities with vetted resources; and 3) communicating its progress and success.   It runs two grant programs—the Catalytic Program, which makes $25,000-$75,000 grants to support innovative, collaborative, and inspiring ideas to enhance Pittsburgh neighborhoods, and Small & Simple Grants, which makes $15,000 grants to support strategic, small-scale, community-serving projects.
