"Almost two years ago, we set out to connect our downtown neighborhoods. The Encore project will rebuild the historic Central Park neighborhood, restore hope, secure housing, and reshape our urban landscape. Receiving the Choice Neighborhoods grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development is a major step towards making this vision a reality."
