Final Phase of Community Mitigation Fund Awards to Occur in February


Near Southeast Community Partners and the volunteer board that makes award decisions will implement the final phase of awards from the CSX Virginia Avenue Tunnel Community Mitigation Fund beginning in February 2018. Since 2015, grants have been awarded to nearly 30 deserving community organizations through the first five phases of the process, benefiting neighbors through enhancements to schools, parks and other community assets. Information about the application process and criteria for funding is available at the link above, and it’s not too early to consider potential uses for the final phase of funding. This short video provides more information about the purpose of the fund and some of the projects that have already received awards.
