Neighborhood Improvements Funding Initiative
The Neighborhood Improvements Funding Initiative is a one-time program in Albemarle County that is aimed at supporting small-scale programs in the county's growth areas. $1.4 million is to be split evenly throughout the seven growth areas. The funding comes from the $8.1 million surplus from FY2016.  Supervisors opted to retain ultimate control over what would be funded.  Community meetings began on March 13, 2017. 
The program was honored by the Virginia Association of Counties in 2018.
