Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds were set aside to create the Community Coalition Grant Program. This technical assistance pilot program seeks to support recommendations of the Memphis 3.0 Comprehensive Plan to support, build and expand community coalitions to broaden civic engagement. This program was piloted only in the Orange Mound and Binghampton communities. Non-profit organizations in these communities were encouraged to apply for a grant to fund their neighborhood-oriented projects, events, and activities (i.e. projects for seniors or youth, crime/safety awareness, education, health awareness, beautification, etc.)
