Grants that bolster community.

If you see a need in your community for public infrastructure improvements, you can apply for one of the grant programs administered by Idaho Commerce. These grants can help fund a range of projects, from water lines to public parks to senior and community centers, with the goal of making communities more inviting to future growth. Read about some of our past community development projects here.
