Neighborhood Improvement Strategy

Vital neighborhoods provide decent affordable housing, high-performing schools, attainable health care and social services, accessible employment, connective transportation, active retail and commercial areas, safe streets, and sustainable infrastructure. To achieve this in identified neighborhoods, the program has two sets of goals:

Short-term Goals

  • Improve public safety
  • Invest in improvements to the area's physical characteristics
  • Increase community engagement

Long-term Goals

  • Promote economic revitalization
  • Provide supportive services to reduce poverty and create paths to self-sufficiency
