Improving & Strengthening Neighborhoods

The Great Neighborhoods Rockford Region project is underway. Using best practices identified by the Family & Neighborhoods spoke team, the project team partnered with three neighborhood associations to pilot the Great Neighborhoods project.  The project helps neighborhoods discovery and define their assets through in-person and online mapping tools, gaps in achieving the vision for their neighborhood, and developing actions around advocacy, doing, and branding and marketing.

The team held a press conference on Friday, October 27 and were recently highlighted by the Rockford Register Star:
