HNMA Receives $3,000 Grant to Implement Early Action Project
We are excited to announce that the Historic Northeast-Midtown Association (HNMA) was awarded a $3,000 Neighborhoods Rising Fund (NRF) grant to help implement one of the three early action projects identified by the community in the Northeast Area Master Plan process: the development of a neighborhood grocery store.
Connected to the overall theme of “A Food Hub,” the development of a neighborhood grocery has been identified as a top community priority for implementation. Working with local community members, HNMA and the planning team have created a strategy for developing the first phases of this important initiative. In addition to the NRF grant, the Unified Government has dedicated resources to moving this project forward.
In other good news, the Turtle Hill Community Association also received a NRF grant in the amount of $3,000 for the Kids Art in Douglass Park project at the orchard located at 5th & Washington Boulevard. This project is a part of the Turtle Hill Summer Youth Art Camp.
The Neighborhoods Rising Fund (NRF) is a funding collaborative managed by the Community Capital Fund (CCF) and Greater Kansas City LISC that provides grants up to $3,000 for high-impact community projects and neighborhood revitalization initiatives that help build stronger and more effective neighborhood organizations in low to moderate income areas throughout Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas.
We look forward to announcing the next phases of the neighborhood grocery store early action project!
