This leveraging power creates greater visible change in our neighborhoods. It funds the construction of safe, affordable homes for residents. It revitalizes commercial corridors by funding streetscape improvement projects and providing grants to help small business owners renovate their storefronts. It helps build community gardens, greenhouses and community food centers that will provide access to better nutrition and food-based entrepreneurship opportunities. And it provides essential start-up and capacity building funds to the non-profit organizations who are working hard to revitalize our local neighborhoods.
