What is the Community Coalition Program?

The mission of Community Coalition Program (CCP) is to provide an open forum in which stakeholders may discuss and resolve community issues collectively, advocate for a better quality of life, engage collaboratively with government and nonprofit services within the community to support the organizational growth of each of their respective entities and the overall community. CCP is a pilot project, that seeks to incorporate the recommendations of the Memphis 3.0 Comprehensive Plan. It establishes a formal process to support community coalitions to broaden citizen engagement.

The Community Coalition is a neighborhood based committee consisting of neighborhood leaders which will represent the interests of community stakeholders in the community. The Community Coalition will bring issues and concerns to the attention of the responsible party, propose solutions and serve as a sounding board for initiatives affecting the neighborhood. The Community Coalition serves as the entity that advises government, nonprofit organizations and other community based agencies on the delivery of services to the residents of the community.

The CCP is open primarily to grantees of the City of Memphis’, Division of Housing and Community Development’s CCP - pilot program. Each organization may be represented by up to two representatives. Three slots are set aside for the inclusion of adhoc members from the community. The Community Coalition is facilitated a Neighborhood Technical Assistance Advisor. The role of the advisor will be to provide technical support to grantees in fulfilling commitments per their grant agreement. For the pilot period (September 2019 – June 2020), the grant program will serve following two communities: The Orange Mound community of which is defined as all land within the following census tracts: 47157006600, 47157006700, 47157006800, 4715007000 and 47157007900 bounded by Airways Blvd., Southern Avenue, Semmes St., Barron Ave, Kimball Ave., and Lamar Av., primarily the 38111 zip code; and the Binghampton Community of which is defined as all land within the following census tracts: 47157001500, 47157002800, 47157003000, and 47157002700 bounded by Summer Avenue (North), Poplar Avenue (South), North Holmes Street (East), and east Parkway North (West), primarily the 38112 zip code.
