Fiscal Year 19-20
Funds are available through the Community Livability Grant Program for permanent, real property improvements. Projects must add, expand, or improve physical space.
Priority will be given to projects that benefit historically underserved populations (e.g., communities of color or people with low income) and that promote widely shared prosperity. Such projects would, for example:
- Improve access to jobs and workforce development services.
- Support wealth creation opportunities for small business owners.
- Honor and enhance the neighborhood’s cultural diversity and history.
- Deliver a community asset tailored to the community’s expressed priorities and opportunities.
