Brownfields to Healthfields Project

We have submitted the Vitalyst Health Foundation grant letter of intent and December 1st will know if we are selected to move on to a full proposal.

A coalition of city of Phoenix departments, nonprofits and ASU resources has been built to craft this template for brownfield redevelopment. Those organizations include: city of Phoenix Department of Environmental Programs, Parks and Recreation Department, Department of Neighborhood Services, Keep Phoenix Beautiful, ASU Sustainable Cities, ASU Department of Public Service and Community Solutions and Phoenix City Council, District 8.

Next we will be working on developing the action plan, determining our target community, community outreach and finding other funding sources.

If you would like to be part of this project, contact Tara at tara.briscoe@azsustainabilityalliance.com, or watch the calendar for the next group meeting.
