Build your community.
Idaho’s natural beauty is often the focus of much oohing and aahing, but we know what’s really at the heart of our state: our communities. Idaho’s cities and towns are so vibrant largely because of the efforts of the people who live, work and play in them.
Citizens often lead the charge in beautifying their communities and making them more prosperous. If you’re passionate about enhancing your hometown, chances are you’ll find help at Idaho Commerce. We offer community block grants, training and technical assistance, and other resources that can help your community thrive economically and culturally. Explore our resources below.
