Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP)
Established in 1985, Monterey's Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP) directs tourist-generated dollars directly back into the City's residential neighborhoods. Under a Charter Amendment, at least 16 percent of the money collected through hotel taxes (Transient Occupancy Tax) must be spent on neighborhood and community improvements. Learn more about our neighborhood's NIP projects-in-progress and how to originate a project here!
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Periodic classes are in the Community Room behind the firehouse and Police station (Pacific and Martin).
