Neighbourhoods Alive! (NA!) is a long-term, community-based, social and economic development strategy, which recognizes that building healthy neighbourhoods requires more than an investment in bricks and mortar. Neighbourhoods Alive! supports and encourages community-driven revitalization efforts in designated neighbourhoods across Manitoba in a number of key areas, including: 

·         employment and training

·         education and recreation

·         safety and crime prevention

·         housing and physical improvements  

Neighbourhoods Alive! provides community organizations in designated neighbourhoods/communities with the support they need to revitalize their neighbourhoods. Neighbourhoods Alive! recognizes that often the best ideas for neighbourhood revitalization come from the community itself. The aim of Neighbourhoods Alive! is to support community ideas and goals with funding and planning assistance.
Neighbourhoods Alive! works with:
·       residents
·       community groups
·       schools
·       businesses and
·       other local organizations
Together Neighbourhoods Alive! and community partners build on the strengths and experiences of communities, taking into account the distinctive needs, conditions and priorities of individual neighbourhoods.
