AVLF Receives Grant from Stadium Neighborhoods Community Trust Fund

LIBBY KING | April 29th, 2020

In February, the Stadium Neighborhoods Community Trust Fund awarded us a grant in the amount of $100,000 for our work in the NPU-V neighborhood.

The Stadium Neighborhoods Community Trust Fund Committee gives guidance and oversight of the fund created after the sale of Turner Field and surrounding properties. The fund is to support projects and activities that benefit the Atlanta neighborhoods of Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, Summerhill, and a portion of Grant Park.

The Stadium Fund’s grant to AVLF will be used to support our Standing with Our Neighbors® program in Atlanta’s NPU-V neighborhood. These funds will provide crucial community assistance to residents in NPU-V, preventing eviction, improving living conditions, and reducing student turnover rates in local schools.
