Community Partners is serving as the administrative home for this multi-partner collaborative effort that will direct $23 million in state funding into a wide range of alternative energy, active transportation and greening projects in the Pacoima-Sun Valley area of northeast Los Angeles. Identified as a community burdened with higher-than-normal rates of air and other environmental pollutants, Pacoima will experience important environmental, health, workforce development and climate resilience benefits through this effort. Community Partners is providing administrative, contract compliance and network support infrastructure to ensure the success of this grassroots, community-led effort. The funding is part of a larger $46 million funding pool awarded by the California Strategic Growth Council (SGC) to both Sacramento and Pacoima, part of its Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program. It is the first time SGC has selected a nonprofit intermediary to manage the program.
Our Capacities: Grants and contract management, administrative services, financial management, experience developing and managing multi-partner place-based initiatives
