Over the years the Collister Neighborhood Association has received grants for a variety of projects (see below) including the installations of a street light, trail markers, public art, and a bus stop shelter. We’ve also received funding for website maintenance, neighborhood signs, and a pedestrian access bridge over a canal.

The Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP – formerly Neighborhood Reinvestment Grants) is a partnership between the City of Boise and City registered neighborhood associations. The program funds comprehensive neighborhood plans and capital construction projects to help enrich the lives of Boise citizens, enhance the identity and quality of life in Boise neighborhoods and encourage a strong sense of community. The program also funds mini-grants to support neighborhood communication and community-building.
