Community Solutions

New York, New York
$1.06 million



Community Solutions provides tools, data, coaching and a supportive connection to assist communities in developing systems-level solutions to complex social problems, such as poverty and homelessness. A three-year grant for general operating support, jointly recommended by our Arts & Culture, Human Services and Health teams, pushes the boundaries of how arts and culture, human services and health can be integrated into a holistic approach to community revitalization in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y., and the Northeast neighborhood of Hartford, Conn., and to scale real-time learning to cities participating in its national 100,000 Homes Campaign to end street homelessness.
