In the past, NNO events have taken many forms including but not limited to block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from emergency personnel, rallies and marches, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations, and seminars. National Night Out also aligns with the prevention portion of the three-pronged Unified Erie Violence Reduction Initiative. Learn more about the Community Action Plan here.
National Night Out 2022 is on Tuesday, August 2, 2022.
United Way Funding Priorities
Please note that funding for NNO events is limited. Preference will be given to groups that make a clear attempt to address Unified Erie’s priority risk and protective factors, and/or host an event in collaboration with a community school (where applicable). National Night Out aligns with the prevention portion of the three-pronged Unified Erie Violence Reduction Initiative.
National Night Out is a nationwide effort. United Way of Erie County focuses on funding events in high-need neighborhoods within Erie County. Those interested in learning more should contact their local township or municipality office to inquire about events scheduled for National Night Out that may not be funded by United Way of Erie County.
The Neighborhood Resource Organization is a service agency created to provide resources, support, and technical assistance to neighborhood groups throughout Erie County. This organization is committed to the ongoing fight against Community Disorganization. It does not have a yearly fee or membership. It is a service agency that offers regular trainings, assists with funding applications, notifies groups of funding opportunities, researches and communicates best practice information, educates on services available, connects groups with key community partners as well as each other, and serves as a fiscal agent for grant funds to individual neighborhood groups. These services are available to any neighborhood group that is organized or that wishes to organize and desires to utilize the services.
