Watch a video about this winning project from a 2020 AARP Community Challenge grantee
LOCATION: Buffalo, New York
GRANTEE: LISC Western New York | Buffalo Center for Health Equity
The "Pride in Place Buffalo" project launched a website featuring a map of cultural landmarks, natural areas, parks, transportation hubs, public art and other essential anchors in three historically underinvested African American neighborhoods. In addition to hosting several community programs, the project team installed 20 "idea boxes" decorated by local artists to gather feedback from residents about what more they want and need for their communities.
The AARP Community Challenge funds "quick-action" projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
