As a joint initiative between the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development and the Western Addition Community Stabilization Fund, this grant program is aimed at creating opportunities for individuals living, working, and participating in everyday life in the Western Addition. The objective is to create projects that engage the community in the goals of Community Empowerment and Advocacy, Community Cohesion and Community Building, History and Heritage, and Resident Stability. Selected projects will receive grants between $1,000 and $5,000 to cover project-related expenses including translation, hiring of artists, landscapers, and other professionals that can assist in the implementation of a project. Funding for projects will be made available based on each project’s timeline and needs.
