Partners for Places Mini Grant award announcement
Posted on 06/22/2020
The Memphis-Shelby County Office of Sustainability and Resilience is pleased to announce the award of a Partners for Places Mini Grant that will support the creation of an equitable development plan for the Summer & National anchor neighborhood in the Memphis 3.0 Jackson Planning District. The Heights Community Development Corporation is the lead community partner on this project, with additional technical assistance provided by the Hyde Foundation. Over the next three months, the Heights CDC and partners will convene an equitable development task force to identify priorities for a small area planning process centered on equitable development outcomes. This Mini Grant work will result in a proposal for a full Partners for Places grant to fund activities related to this larger equitable development-centered small area plan which, if awarded, will kick off in late 2020/early 2021.

A joint project of the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network, Partners for Places is a matching grant program that improves U.S. and Canadian communities by building partnerships between local government leaders, community groups, and place-based foundations. National funders invest in local projects developed through these partnerships to advance efforts to create communities that are sustainable, prosperous and just. The Partners for Places Mini Grants are designed to spark new relationships or deepen existing connections that will hopefully help these communities develop a successful Partners for Places project proposal in the future.
