A dozen Community Partners projects are participating in LA 2050’s 2014 Grants Challenge. From tackling policy change to make streets safer for pedestrians, to helping small “mom n’ pop” store owners create oases of good food businesses in ‘food desert’ communities, Community Partners projects have submitted (both solo and as partners) a wealth of compelling proposals. Check them out below. And remember that public voting begins Sept. 2. $1M is at stake.
