A Comprehensive & Multifaceted Approach
Our approach to neighborhood revitalization work is centered around co-creating resident-focused solutions that impact affordable housing, small businesses, and placemaking efforts. We believe genuine revitalization only occurs when both a geographic place and its people see positive change.
To that end, we align resources that support 1) the physical built environment, 2) community-driven neighborhood culture and image and 3) small businesses. We provide technical assistance, capacity building expertise, and connections to experienced professionals who can assist with strategy, coordination, mentorship and coaching. We work to ensure that community developers and business owners can forge long-term outcomes designed to benefit all residents through a suite of comprehensive program offerings that consider the full community including:
Real Estate Development (Built Environment)
- Development Services (Centralized Real Estate Accelerator)
- Capital Solutions (Equitable Growth Guarantee Fund)
- Capacity Building (Real Estate Co-Powerment Series)
- Policy/Advocacy (Preservation Working Group)
Neighborhood Image/Planning (Image and Culture)
- Corridor Revitalization (SHORE)
