Memphis, Tennessee
$1.24 million



Innovate Memphis is a nonprofit organization that focuses on social innovation and neighborhood economic vitality within Memphis. This grant supports a demonstration site for the national Reimagining the Civic Commons initiative, which seeks to utilize Memphis’ Fourth Bluff to connect the city’s riverfront to its downtown via key assets – the Cossitt Library, Mississippi River Park, Memphis Park, and a connecting pedestrian/bike trail.
