A Selection Committee has chosen the Fifth Ward neighborhood to receive funding at the Comprehensive level of support from GO Neighborhoods. Through this new partnership with Fifth Ward, LISC will provide funding to a backbone organization to carry out a major planning process, hire a full time position and coordinate comprehensive community revitalization in the neighborhood. The community has nominated Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation to serve as its backbone organization.
Fifth Ward joins two other neighborhoods currently at a Comprehensive level of investment: Near Northside and OST/South Union.
Congratulations the Fifth Ward neighborhood, who worked hard to bring stakeholders together to prepare for this investment. We look forward to continuing to celebrate the accomplishments of the Fifth Ward GO Neighborhood.
