Ironbound Community Corp.

Newark, New Jersey



The community-based organization works to engage and empower individuals, families, and groups in the working-class Ironbound neighborhood adjacent to Newark’s waterfront to realize their aspirations and, together, work to create a just, vibrant and sustainable community. This three-year grant supports implementation of a plan to make the city’s neighborhoods more resilient to the effects of flooding, air pollution and extreme weather events associated with climate change.
