4. Call for LOIs from local organizations who seek funding to support neighborhood revitalization projects in Pittsburgh communities
In partnership with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), Neighborhood Allies offers financing, technical assistance and added capacity for a large range of community development and housing projects. Today, we’re happy to announce the closing of our most recent local financing package, a combination of loans, made to the McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation and a private ownership group to support the renovation of the historic Roxian Theatre!
“The Real Estate Co-Powerment Series increased my understanding of real estate redevelopment and how to properly work with city and private agencies to accomplish the goals of my community. What followed after graduating from the Series, was the confidence to believe in the process. Confidence then gave way to courage. Some folks participate in the cohort for personal reasons, some for professional reasons. No matter the individual purpose, we all want our communities to be healthy.”
With double the amount of applicants and creative project ideas than 2017, Our Love My Neighbor! grant program reached and supported more of Pittsburgh’s residents than ever!
