Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Ironbound Community Corp.

Newark, New Jersey



The 45-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. It is using this funding to work with other stakeholders at the neighborhood, city and state levels to identify measures to improve the climate resilience of low-income communities in New Jersey.
