Neighborhood Purpose Grant

Note:  Dear Highland Park Stakeholders,

At this moment, HHPNC is suspending any further acceptance of Neighborhood Purpose Grant (NPG) applications and approvals until further notice. We expect to resume considering NPG applications in February 2019. The board is undergoing a revision in the budget of funds to reflect the immediate needs of our community.

Thank you for your understanding.

In Unity,

Rocio Rivas, PhD., President
Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council
