Thriving Neighborhoods Initiative

Victoria Foundation has launched an effort to deepen its impact by working with resident leaders and community stakeholders to target and leverage its investments in neighborhoods.  With the intention of making a 7 to 10 year commitment, the Foundation is working with partners in Fairmount Heights and Upper Clinton Hill to identify priority projects and build civic capacity. The initiative is being carried out with Greater Newark LISC  as an intermediary and the Rutgers-Newark Cornwall Center as a program evaluator.

The initiative includes coaching for neighborhood associations, leadership development for residents, a mini-grants program, and support for residents in identifying and implementing projects to improve neighborhood quality of life.
