The Northside Neighborhood Initiative is a broad-based partnership effort to control the dirt in Northside, have neighbors determine the future of properties, and preserve the future of this diverse, family-friendly neighborhood.
Thanks to the leadership of Northside neighbors and the collaboration and support of dozens of partners, the Northside Neighborhood Initiative strategies and our community land bank are working to bend the market towards justice. By the end of 2019, we have purchased our 36 properties, welcomed 29 families and 40 children into Northside through these housing efforts, and implemented a set of community-first strategies that are preventing the displacement of long-term neighbors and preserving the future of these historic neighborhoods.
