Knight Neighborhood Challenge
When the Knight Foundation awarded $5 million to the revitalization of the College Hill Corridor in 2009, $3 million was set aside for the Knight Neighborhood Challenge. Administered by the Community Foundation of Central Georgia, the Knight Neighborhood Challenge is a five-year program that underwrites the best ideas to transform the city of Macon's first neighborhoods into the vision of the College Hill Corridor Master Plan.
A broad-based, competitive grant program, the Challenge funds projects – small and large – that give College Hill a sense of place, spruce up its parks and public spaces or enhance the arts and entertainment scene. The effort also aims to get people involved in College Hill through an array of civic and cultural projects.
The Knight Neighborhood Challenge is volunteerism at it best. If you are willing to put your idea, time and volunteer plan into action, funding could be available.
