Hillcrest is the only neighborhood where we've bumped into one. . You might contact the neighborhood service center coordinators (Yun Pitre or Jenny Frankl) to ask about the fiscal-sponsor thing. I wouldn't think this is JUST for formal neighborhood councils, which have sponsors if they aren't 501 c 3's on their own ... Sorry, hadn’t heard about a ban on bouncy houses.

I previously looked into getting a neighborhood grant in order to get a bounce house for our neighborhood night out. our 'hood has lots of families but they don't seem to come out to these so I thought a bounce house might get more people out. in looking at the requirements, it seemed like you need a neighborhood business to sponsor you and/or be backed up with liability insurance... it all seemed so complicated and not something I really had time to figure out. do other neighborhoods just rent bounce houses without a matching fund grant? this comment may be too late for anyone to see, but….
