Neighborhood Initiatives are programs, projects and activities initiated by TPNO designed to work towards our organizational goal and priorities. The initiative will be led by the Advisory Board, an ad hoc task force, a standing committee, and/or specific neighborhood residents. Outside entities may be involved in helping to carry out one or more elements of an initiative’s objectives. Outside partner entities could include community groups, non-profits and City departments or City sponsor events and activities.
Initiative fund can be used for any approved purpose including purchase of materials, supplies or equipment, program activities, and administrative or event support.
Examples of approved Community Initiatives include our Blade Signs, William Krisel’s Twin Palms Exhibit, Willian Krisel Street renaming/Dedication, Neighborhood Entry monument sign, safety vests and water conservation.

One way Twin Palms Neighborhood Organization (TPNO) seeks to address its funding priorities is by investing in Community Grants. Community Grants are generally made on a one-time basis.
Community Grants are programs, projects and activities initiated by entities outside of TPNO designed to work towards our original goal and priorities. Eligible entities include community groups, non-profits and City departments or City sponsored events and activities.
Grant funds can be used for any approved purpose including purchase of materials, supplies or equipment, program activities and administrative or event support. Grants will not be awarded to individuals or profit-making businesses.
Examples of approved Community Grants include grants to the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, Palm Springs Fire Station #4, Ocotillo Lodge, Palm Springs Police Officers Association, Friends of the Palms Springs Library, and the Palm Springs Walk of Stars Alexander Family Star.
