Last year, our neighborhood was awarded an 18 month Building Neighborhood Capacity Program Grant. This January Kisha Greer, Anna Terry, Tamekia McGhee, Jared Myers and Ed Nance met at the Department of Justice to begin working on a neighborhood revitalization plan.
The Grant will address:
- Resident Engagment
- Neighborhood Partnerships
- Effective Solutions
Every neighborhood wants to ensure families have good education, employment, safety, housing, health and well-being. The BNCP will help our community 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.
