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. [1] Supervisors opted to retain ultimate control over what would be funded. [2] Community meetings began on March 13, 2017. [3]

Supervisors approved recommendations from the CAC's on November 8, 2017. [4] Supervisors agreed in mid-June to split the money evenly among all the growth areas. [5]

The program was honored by the Virginia Association of Counties in 2018. [citation needed]
