PDC is seeking proposals from community-based organizations for projects that foster vibrant and healthy neighborhoods and improve the prosperity of area residents and businesses located within the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area. 

Funds are available through the PDC 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 communities of color or people with low incomes, and that promote widely shared prosperity. Such projects would, for example:

  • Support wealth creation opportunities for small business owners
  • Improve access to jobs and workforce development services
  • Honor and enhance the neighborhood’s cultural diversity and history
  • Deliver a community asset tailored to the community’s expressed priorities and opportunities
  • Align with the priorities of the North/Northeast Community Development Initiative; build community prosperity by supporting growth, development and sustainability of key community-based organizations that drive economic development outcomes and serve communities that have experienced displacement or not benefited from economic opportunities (e.g. African Americans, people of color, and people with disabilities).

 

IMPORTANT DATES

Application Open for Grant Proposals: 
March 1, 2017

Office Hours: Application Assistance
PDC will hold Office Hours sessions in March and April for applicants who want hands-on assistance.
