Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District Inc.

Newark, New Jersey



The organization is coordinating community efforts to plan, design and build a sustainable arts and cultural district near Newark’s 11-acre Lincoln Park and Coast area that provides affordable housing, cultural programming, urban farming and green jobs for residents. Funding from this three-year grant underwrites its revitalization efforts and the restoration of a vacant church for use as an outdoor amphitheater.
