Every neighborhood wants to ensure families have good education, employment, safety, housing, health and well-being. The goal of the BNCP is to help neighborhoods develop the information, skills, leadership and programs to do this. Second the BNCP will support the community with connections to civic leaders, business owners, local organizations and national resources. In a year and a half these objectives will be the components of a neighborhood plan to guide future revitalization.
