The Neighborhood Services Department is also proud to offer the Neighborhood Initiative Program. The Neighborhood Initiative Program was honored in 2005 with national awards from the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the Points of Light Institute. In 2013, the Points of Light Institute recognized the Neighborhood Initiative Program again. The Daily Point of Light Award honors individuals and groups that create a meaningful change in communities across America. The City of North Richland Hills encourages you to volunteer and be part of this rewarding program.
