Ironbound Community Corp.

Newark, New Jersey



The 40-year-old community-based organization provides child care, youth programming, family support, and senior services to the multiethnic, working-class Ironbound neighborhood adjacent to Newark’s waterfront. This two-year grant strengthens collaborative efforts to phase out dirty diesel trucks and bring a Clean Trucks policy to ports in New Jersey and New York.
