About

As of July 1, 2022, the name of the Neighborhood Initiatives Program has changed to the Neighborhood Initiatives and Environmental Services (NIES) program. The program continues to provide capacity-building support, project consultation and acts as a connector between neighborhoods, communities, public and regulatory agencies, and the City. NIES functions are to promote community solutions, capacity building, and civic engagement in addressing environmental justice challenges within the City as identified in the General Plan. NIES will champion the important work and collaboration ahead regarding the framework and next steps for the implementation phases that focus on improving the environmental health, sustainability, and quality of life for disadvantaged communities and the overall City of Santa Ana.
